It has always been a questionable issue: can Venetian plaster be successfully applied over exterior walls in North East of USA? Snowy winters, Ice storms, hurricanes and much more.... Who would even dare to use Venetian plaster in such harsh environment? 

Look at the

masterpiece below.

This beautiful modern house in Upstate New York has received "dark chocolate"  exterior grade Venetian plaster more than a year ago, and the client loved it.

Application system: 

Cement undercoat (done by GC)

Sand primer Fixafond 400 (Fresco made)

Two coats of Marblestone AD (Fresco made)

One coat of fine Marblestone Plak (Fresco made)

Waterproofer (Marmorino Depot)

Cera Wax (oil based) with gold Mica


Application: by Igor Koskossov and team.

looks great man. i was wondering how the exterior stuff would hold up. I would not worry about here in southern calif but i would be hesitant to use in a bad climate area with lots of moisture

Tara, if you use 2 coats of Travertine by Fresco, you will make your client very happy!
This is classical Italian exterior finish from Tuscan region.
It can also be washed over for adding natural antique effect.

This is beautiful!
Would you have any suggestions for an exterior plaster for a earthy Tuscan look?
My client has a semi-enclosed patio space, on a mountain side in Vail, CO, with Sto stucco’d walls that he wants to redo. I’m doing research to find the perfect product.
