Total Performance Artisan Plaster
Silk Plaster® brings a refined atmosphere to interior architecture with its smooth burnished surface, natural depth, soft luminous color without being dominating or trendy. It is our Custom Venetian Plaster designed both as an alternative to paint, and to overcome the challenges of specifying lime-based Venetian Plaster on a large scale. It allows precise control of color, burnish and dimensional effect. Silk Plaster® is best appreciated in its magnitude bringing “materiality” to walls, solid-built character to a home, and allows interior architecture to breathe with a refinement that beckons to be touched.
“Imagine walking into a space… You look up through soft burnished walls to the ceilings and notice that light moves and morphs as you move, flowing and sometimes disappearing, giving a natural depth and living warmth with a feeling that you want to stay.”
Silk Plaster® acts as a uniquely sensitive register for the natural shifting and pooling of light through interior space, which is unique to every building. Its smooth surface seems to gently emit light and light seems to hover over it, adding a soft natural depth and luminescence emulating the grace and tactile feel of silk. Our Custom Venetian Plaster has a range of burnish from flat to eggshell, pearl, and a wax-polish appropriate to suit whole-house application and a range of lighting conditions. With a timeless refined beauty, it complements fine woods and stone, gives fine art an appropriate home, and brings wholeness to interiors essentially making everything else look better.
Silk Plaster® is a unique integral colored acrylic plaster with marble powder that is more stable than conventional integral plasters (ie. Venetian style plasters). It is very long-lasting natural finish unparalleled in the wall finishing industry because it carries a guarantee of invisible repair, and an unprecedented range of design/build benefits making our work indestructible and installations problem free.
