COCCODRILLO

The CROCODILE is part of our newest collection. This unique animal skin finish, developed by our experienced and skilled artisans,  was created to meet the demands of our modern  times without taking away from the historical quality of the product.

Like STUCCO VENEZIANO and PALLADIANO, the CROCODILE finish is made from pure Grassello di Calce, a limestone found in the Piave river outside Venice, and the precious finely-ground Carrara marble. 

 

Pietra Viva recommends the use of the CROCODILE finish only for interiors since it is made of the finest Carrara marble. The luxurious marble-like finish of the CROCODILE gives the walls an amazing animal skin effect. 

 

 

Technical Information

 

Description:
Like the PALLADIANO, the CROCODILE is from the Grassello family and is made of a mix of Grassello di Calce (limestone) and finely-ground Carrara marble. CROCODILE is a 100% natural product.

 

Application:
CROCODILE's application process requires a minimum of four coats applied with a metal spatula.

Entirely made by hand, CROCODILE is only for interior walls, columns or other curved surfaces. A wax sealer is applied in the final stage for protection and to insure a glass-like, polished marble/skin effect.

 

Texture:
CROCODILE is famous for its animal skin texture.

Colors:
Pietra Viva can custom make or match any color according to the specific needs of each individual client and project.
