Natural Marmorino for Floor - Pastellone
There are many examples of lime-based plaster floor applications in keeping with the Venetian tradition. Starting with this antique tradition, we have combined an application technique with a new material to achieve an excellent compromise. This solution retains the esthetics of antique marmorino while adding the durability that modern day living demands.
This finish is suitable for use in areas where you want natural materials and simple lines. For this reason, it’s ideal for a miminalist environment because of smooth, uninterrupted continuity.
Natural Marmorino is suitable for any area
*Bathrooms, kitchens, stairs, hallways, or bedrooms. Care must be taken to avoid damaging it as for any other floors made of wood, tile or soft stone. It has a naturally non-slip surface, but special anti-slip treatments are possible. It has a smooth, lightly polished finish which has a transparent look. Cleaning is extremely easy.
*The final effect depends on the protective treatment. Linseed oil gives it the most natural appearance and is the most common final treatment. A polyurethane varnish can give the surface a stronger, more durable satin or glossy finish which is more difficult to scratch; however, the presence of varnish may look unnatural to the trained eye.

Natural Hydraulic Lime and cement based Finish for Floor
The recipe for Marmorino for Floors comes from an antique recipe, “Pastellone Veneziano”. Pastellone was, in fact, the application of Classic Venetian Marmorino onto floors. Examples can be found in Venice and throughout the Veneto Region. Our Pastellone is made stronger by using Hydraulic Lime and acrylic binders. The material which is white, can be tinted to any color using dyes which are compatible with lime.
