Does Venetian plaster crack frequently asked question.
Like any other material, if not applied correctly, any polished plaster or other material from the Italian plaster family can crack. That is why it is important to request the applicator to apply an anti-crack coating before putting on the plaster and burnishing it.
Once the system is applied correctly, however, it is very strong and durable. Please make sure to contact us at Art Decorating if you need advice regarding the surface, material, method or the supply.
The antic crack sistem we using before applying our Venetian plaster to ensure the durability of our finishes is a flexible cement based coat which acts as a thick water and crack proof substrate which prevents the appearance of cracks on the surface cussed by subsidence or any thermal and mechanical movement.
