Venetian Plaster

I used Behr Venetian Plaster about 10 years ago.  I still love the look but it needs "refreshing" and I needed to patch some holes from picture frames.

 

Can I paint over it?  Best way or type of paint to do so or is there something else I should do/use to give it a fresh coat look?

I don't want to put more Venetian Plaster up.  Do I have other options for covering the existing plaster?  I like the textured look it has.

Mrs284,

 

The venetian plaster is very porous.I would advise primeing it with a dedicated primer such as Behr's No.75 acrylic primer before painting. The primer may be tinted toward your finish paint color.

.

The venetian plaster does leave a fair amount of texture on the walls .This texture will be apparent through a plain coat of paint. What I might sugges, which would give an interesting look, is to then go over your base coat of paint with a faux glaze. I would suggest rolling on a very thin coat of the glaze followed by a wiping down with cloths or paper towels. The glaze will stuck in the low spots of the texture and be wiped off the protuding texture. You can remove as much or little of the glaze as suits your taste.

 

A fairly safe way to chose a color for your faux finish is to select a base color from the Behr color charts. Then move down two or three levels on those charts to get the tint color to be mixed into the glaze. The glaze is diluted with paint at the ratio of one part paint to four parts glaze.

 

Behr does publish a broschure on Faux finishes which is free at the Paint counter. In the broschure are several suggested color selections.

 

Hope this has been of help
