Polished Plaster, Melbourne Sydney and Brisbane, Bishop Master Finishes

What is Polished Plaster

The name Polished Plaster covers a wide range of decorative plaster finishes. It is a natural lime based plaster wall and ceiling finish which is applied in multiple coats by skilled artisans using a specialist trowel. It replicates the organic beauty of polished natural stone, and is known by many names including Venetian Plaster, Venetian Stucco, Marmorino, Carrara and Spatulata. It is trowelled onto a level 4 finished substrate in 3 coats which are then burnished to create a smooth glass like venetian plaster finish. The Venetian Plaster or Polished Plaster wall is then waxed using a natural beeswax.

Our Polished Plaster Finishes

When you get it from Bishops
Bishop Master Finishes have 14 premium finishes that are made using environmentally friendly materials. We manufacture our own Polished Plaster locally and specifically for each project. We also supply and install the product ourselves, we don’t sell the product to external renderers. This gives us an exclusive supply chain across manufacturing and application which has 3 major benefits:

1. It means we’re able to perfectly colour match our Polished Plaster colours to paint colours, tiles, or any other material.

2. The product is not mass produced, it’s made and applied in the traditional way which means no shortcuts, including no cutting corners on the number of coats applied. This allows us to guarantee quality across all projects.

3. We only employ highly skilled applicators, which means that the person applying the finish has years of experience, they haven’t just done a 2 week course
