Veneshe's introductory Venetian plastering course is for the handy homeowner, or decorative painter who wants to learn to apply real Italian plasters. Not to be confused with the commercially-produced paint-based faux plasters commonly found in big box stores, our plasters are the real deal - natural lime plaster, imported in buckets, directly from Italy. If authentic, natural, and old world appeal to you, you're going to love this course!
This course teaches 5 basic Venetian plaster application techniques that will awe your friends, relatives and associates.
