The beauty of this plaster is not just for walls, you can apply it on any surface really. It’s all about preparing the surface correctly for a good grip. Marmarino is a thicker version of venetian plaster, once applied it is about 1/16 to 1/8 of a inch.
This particular counter top is outside. I also decorated the surface using venetian plaster to give it a fresco look and to match some italian vintage pots in the garden. It also is going to be more durable since the design is incrusted in the plaster.
I also chose to apply a darker layer first to add more depth. Its’s clean looking and smooth to the touch, a little bit like cement but softer and has a light sheen to it. The surface is waterproofed with a sealer for stone you could also use wax if you wanted more sheen.
