Fine colored plasters



Clay facing plaster: feels good, looks good. And is healthy to live in.

The last plaster layer has many names, but is often referred to as facing plaster, finishing plaster or simply colored plaster, and it is characterized by tactile and visual specialties such as a fine texture and a particularly attractive appearance.

Composed of colored sand and colored binding agent, i.e. clay, a clay facing plaster differs from a coat of paint in its thicker layer, its stability and robustness. Since a plaster is applied in thicker layers, there are various design options. Smoothing creates a very smooth and fine surface, while sponging produces a light surface structure that creates optical depth: light and shadow play on the walls and thus create a constantly changing effect in the room.

It should be noted that decorative plasters always appear a little cloudy due to their low layer thickness and the way they are processed. In contrast to a coat of paint, plaster is three-dimensional and color changes are not uncommon.

Lime finishing plasters for colored wall design

There are also lime-based finishing plasters, which are composed of white marble sands and a very white lime binder. Like lime base plasters, lime finishing plasters are also cement-free. The color design of a lime plaster is created by adding pigments. Before mixing in, the pigments are mixed with water. The solubility and miscibility into the plaster can thus be significantly improved. In addition, this reduces the risk of stained or cloudy plaster during processing: When working with powdery ingredients, the mixing is otherwise not optimal.

Coarse or fine? Lime facing plaster is available from smooth to finely textured.

Lime finishing plasters are available in different grain sizes, which also have a direct influence on the range (a finer finishing plaster can be applied in thinner layers and therefore extends further). A coarse high-grade plaster is also suitable for facades, for the interior it is preferable to use a finer plaster. In addition to the option of coloring a high-quality lime plaster with pigments, there is also a plaster that is also colored white with pigment. This brilliant white makes a subsequent coat unnecessary.
