Ornamental Plaster


Ornamental plastering is an Ancient Art that dates back to the first century, when it was crudely perfected by Grecian Artisans. The Romans made extensive use of these techniques to decorate the interior and exterior of their buildings, throughout the construction of the vast Roman Empire.

The versatility and beauty of this art has been employed through the centuries to this day to decorate both ordinary homes and some of the worlds’ most impressive architecture.
