Campiello Venetian Plaster

Campiello Venetian Plaster
Campiello is decorative paste stucco for interior applications that delivers a highly decorative, glossy finish. It is a natural formula composed of vegetable ingredients, calcium, and acrylic binders. The Veneziano Effect is inspired by the ornate plaster-work of Renaissance Italy. Campiello Decorative stucco has a millennial history. Its origins date back to the Rome of the Caesars and in the art of Ancient Greece. It was Andrea Palladio, a famous Italian architect that in the XVI century re-discovered it through his studies and re-proposed it in the splendid Venetian villas that are the distinguishing mark of his career. Campiello is an aesthetic solution that step by step conquered Lombardy, then Italy, and finally entire Europe of the XVII century. Today, Campiello, the new decorative stucco of the Max Meyer Professional Line, restores the splendor of a classic and prestigious finish.

Aluminum Leaf


Dutch Gold or
composition leaf


Aluminum Leaf imitates the illusion of genuine Silver, at a fraction of the cost. Each individual sheet is bigger and easier to handle then its genuine counter part.

Purchase Aluminum Leaf
Purchase Genuine Silver Leaf

The same applies for 'Dutch Gold', or 'Composition Leaf'. But due to the large brass content, this imitation gold must have a sealer applied to prevent tarnishing, unlike genuine gold leaf.
