YOU WILL NEED TO RECOAT THE WALL WITH MUD OR PLASTER AND MAKE IT SMOOTH FIRST. I did a room that had orange peel texture on it and it shows in the final product finish.

true venetian plaster is made of lime plaster mixed with crushed marble. The italians would take the left over marble and crush it up and use it in plaster. Basically i can make a whole wall look like a sheet of polished marble in just about any color you can think of.

Also true Venetian plaster is not the same as the stuff you get at home depot. The stuff i buy is around $380 bucks per five gallon bucket and is a true product shipped in from Italy. The home depot stuff has a plastic look to it and no where even compares to the real stuff. Also all my tools are from italy and are special triangle shaped trowels with rounded corners for application. If you use a drywall knife it will show straight lines in the final product. I do 4 applications usually and then use a limestone paste to seal/wax it.
