Due to its granularity this plaster forms a pronounced pattern on the wall. You can wash such a finishing material with a usual damp (but not wet) rag. Textured plaster Still such plasterCalled modeling. Its composition is more diverse than the structural one - it includes various additives like mineral crumbs and fibers of various origin.

To work with this kind of decorative cover you will need some artistic skills. But the result will be inimitable - no wonder the name of this particular finishing material comes from one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. Marina Putilovskaya. About plaster and not only We managed to interview one of the most popular Moscow artists in interiors - Marina Putilovskaya. Especially for etk-fashion.com she told us about special ways of applying plaster, amazing decorative effects and something else. Marina Putilovskaya Marina Putilovskaya is a popular Moscow designer. Marina herself calls herself an "interior artist". He is the head of the architectural bureau, which deals with the design of private and public interiors. Among its clients are such public, cultural and political figures as Wiener, Tabakov, Novikov and many others. According to the sketches of Marina Putilovskaya, the furniture is produced by Jumbo Collection, Mechini, Boiserie Italia and Riva. Putilovskaya.ru - Marina, in your opinion, how great is the role of decorative plaster in interior design? - Walls in the interior - this is the background, which plays an important, but not the main role in the design. But the background should always be worthy of the plot itself, as in the painting the baguette should be at the level of the picture itself. Strange will look like a combination of expensive furniture and paintings on a white wall. That's why we often use decorative plasters: on the one hand, because of their decorativeness, on the other - absolute background. Among the decorative finishes today there is a huge number of different textures, designs and decors. And one of the most important positions in this matter is to make the walls remain a background, not putting decorativeness at the forefront, without overshadowing the effect of furniture items. - Marina, we have the repair now in the office, and we want the walls in the room to have golden glare? How to achieve this? - There are special coatings with the effect of a shiny wall - for a fairly simple paint is applied a special varnish Polibrill with sparkles of different varieties. Depending on the color of these spangles, the wall shimmers with different flashes: gold or silver for example. One of the problems with this coating is the impossibility of wet cleaning. - Quite a common situation when neighbors in the house make too much noise. Is there plaster, capable of isolating or at least a few suppress external noise? - Of course, there are also specialized coatings with sound-absorbing effect. They are used, for example, for cinemas. Based on cotton and synthetic fibers. Some of them have golden threads that give very beautiful effects. - Marina, are there any plasters that can not be distinguished from stone or any other natural or building material at the final stage of finishing? - Needless to say. Another of the popular finishes is plaster with the use of structures such as sand or fine marble chips. However, we practically do not use it because of low aesthetic value. Nevertheless, in this series of decorative plasters it is worth highlighting the material, which is usually called an artificial soft stone. This is a very interesting decor system that completely imitates a stone such as sandstone. - What types of decorative finishes are most popular? - Most often we use finishes, called Venetian plasters. It is a multi-step technology of applying paint and wax, which makes it easy to clean up the contamination of walls and is not very dirty due to its complex texture. There are many shades and systems for applying complex effects. Most often we choose Ottocento Classico - for its silky pearl effect. - Are there any special ways of applyingpaints? "Another technique is an old wall." There are several options for applying paint, but the effect depends on the thickness of the coating - the thicker, the "older". Special technologies allow to achieve various effects of aged walls: with large cracks, with the effect of peeling, and so on. One of the important components of such a wall can be a special varnish with variations of shades, up to gold. It emphasizes and shades out all the necessary effects. - Tell us about the most intricate effectsColoring. - In this same line one of the most interesting is the coloring with the effect of "chameleon". Varnishes have 2-3 shades, sometimes completely opposite. They vary depending on the angle from which you look at them. This is a very interesting effect, which requires compulsory execution of individual samples for accuracy of hitting the color, since this coloration is very capricious and difficult to be calculated. We thank Marina Putilovskaya for the interview and wish her success in the difficult field of the designer. After etk-fashion.com like no one else knows that the interior is important.
