Frequently Asked Questions
Most of the questions we receive are answered right here! First, take a moment to look over our FAQ to see the answers to our most popular questions.
How long until I receive my order?
Each product is made-to-order which causes a production line. Typically our turnaround time is 1 to 2 business days from the time of your order. Once the order is produced it ships that evening with UPS Ground or USPS Priority, depending on the size of your order. Most customers receive their orders within 4-6 business days.
Do you have color samples?
Since the colors that we offer are not proprietary, we do not have color samples. We can match any Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore color, so you can consult with one of their swatches if you want to see the color in-person. If the color that you need is not from one of those companies, then we can create a custom color formula for you for a $50 formulation fee. If you have a preexisting color that you want matched exactly, you can send us a sample and we will match it.

How do I apply venetian plaster?
The best way to learn other than an in-person class, is to get your hands on a quart of product and begin making sample boards. We highly recommend watching these Training Videos as well as reading through these Detailed Application Tips.
Which sealer do you recommend?
Glaze n Seal is great for exterior applications as well as high splash zones because of its ability to lock out moisture. Check out this demonstration video: Glaze n Seal
Can I apply venetian plaster to this surface?
The ideal surface for Venetian Plaster is a level 4 or 5 finished surface. Regardless of the surface that you have, it needs to be as smooth as possible before applying your primer as the primer will not fix joints or inconsistencies of depth. Select the primer that is closest to the granulation size of your plaster to set up your project for success. (See Below)
