What is the difference between Stucco Veneziano and Marmorino?
The difference between Stucco Veneziano and Marmorino are the different grain thicknesses of the marble flours used. This is noticeable by the different degree of gloss and the appearance. Stucco Veneziano is usually smoothed to a high gloss and the 3 layers applied create a certain depth effect and a marbling that is more or less present depending on how dark the plaster is coloured. Marmorino, on the other hand, is applied and smoothed in 2 coats. This results in a silky matt surface with a cloudy, Mediterranean appearance.
