Re: Venetian plaster anyone?


Its was called difs..decorative interior finish system.. ive used in many times, it's a relatively old product. What they sold was the colorant and then the customer would mix it with veneer plaster. It worked well with joint compound also.. but what they were selling is basically the same thing you are selling which is the colorant..

Yea my friend also tried the stucco colorant in mud but it didn't work because it was designed for stucco and had no consistency. Plaster color systems are designed for plaster. Fresco Harmony is designed for joint compound. No other company has designed such a system for mud. If you've used color in mud I'd like to hear your experience on that. Currently you have provided no evidence for your statements and you're yet to provide a Link.

Ok Nick, you are right, the system never existed and your product is new and different, because no one here has ever seen colorant put into joint compound...
My god how ever did you come up with such an idea.?

Fresco® Plaster Finish was invented by Warren Nass in an attempt to satisfy a marketable demand for a wall finish reminiscent of the old Italian Frescoes in landmarks such as the Sistine Chapel.

Bright star, that's exactly the same product as the usg stuff, it's basically just colorant that gets mixed into the plaster, it is a nice finish.

Yes it looks like a nice finish. I make my own fresco with blue chalk and topping compound.
