Lime plaster is type of plaster composed of hydrated
lime, sand and water. It's the same coatings
used on buildings for thousands of years.
One of the earliest examples of lime plaster dates
back to the end of the eighth millennium BC. Three
statues were discovered in a buried pit at 'Ain
Ghazal in Jordan that were sculpted with lime
plaster over armatures of reeds and twine.
Later the Romans were known to use it mixed with
marble dust as a fine application over a coarser
lime and sand aggregate, not dissimilar to the
technique used today by us.
Continued use of slaked lime putty existed throughout
the middle ages. During the Renaissance in the
mid 16 th century the Marmorino finish was reintroduced
in Venice largely due to the efforts of Andrea
Palladio and used externally over civil plaster
masonry. The most notable is the highly polished
Stucco Veneziano found in the palaces and Villas
of 16th and 17th century Most Serene Republic
