Each colour is characterised by its very own character, its own brightness and the interplay with other colours. With them, moods and impressions can be achieved that would not be possible without colours. They give our home, our workplace and our surroundings an individual charm and bring new momentum.

All the colours listed here can be used with Stucco Veneziano and all our other marble plasters. The exact details on the suitability and properties of the colour pigments offered are already described in another blog.
