Polished Plaster

Our polished plasters have been used for striking effect in shops, restaurants, hotels, offices and private dwellings. We have highly water-resistant, monolithic finishes which can be used instead of tiles in wet-rooms, shower areas and swimming pools and all the polished plaster finishes have an extensive colour range.

‘Portofino’ (Marmorino) can be finished in a variety of effects: pitted, smooth, polished, matt or stratus. These different textures can be combined using banding, borders or other patterns and the colours can be matched to existing schemes. Deeper colours can be achieved with colour washing, while a pearlescent or metallic powder adds lustre and sheen.

‘Pontormo’ (Spatola) gives a smooth, polished finish with a gentle mottling of colour.

‘Vitrino’ has been created by Franco Finishes using traditional methods and has a highly glazed surface over a natural stone finish. The aggregate can be seen through the polished surface layers, giving depth and intensity.
