 Venetian plaster and Marmorino are products  of the Renaissance, a time when the plasters  we know of today didn't exist.Venetian  Plaster was a combination of slaked lime,  sand, vegetable oils. A formula which was  used from the earliest times. During the  Renaissance, Italian plasterers in the area  around Venice began experimenting with the  basic plaster formula and created different  types of plasters. Marmorino, Intonachino or  Marmofloat. Marbles in a variety of hues  were ground into fine particles and mixed  with clays, and mineral pigments were added  to intensify colors. These mixes were then  added to the plaster. The common sand  usually used in Venetian Plaster was replaced  with finely ground marble dust. The clays  were used to extend the lime and produce a  harder surface. The result was a hard  lustrous plaster in varying hues. These new  plasters were applied to the walls and  ceilings of the finest buildings in and around  Venice. Although the formulas for the  plasters were closely guarded secrets, the  plasters of Venice spread across Italy,  Europe, and eventually by the late 18th  century, to this country
