VELATURA

Made only from Grassello di Calce, a limestone from the Piave river outside Venice, VELATURA is a unique finish. VELATURA is different from the other Pietra Viva stucco finishes in that the application of the final coat of VELATURA is skillfully applied by expert artisans with a brush instead of a trowel.

Preparation for VELATURA requires a minimum of two coats of pure Grassello di Calce, and the final coat is created by adding water to the same Grassello di Calce which creates a seamless and velvet-like ancient finish.

Pietra Viva recommends the use of VELATURA only for interiors of wall and ceilings.
