We’d like to take a closer look at the Травертин (Travertino) decorative plaster. This plaster is #1 in sales and most widely demanded by the market.
TRAVERTINO decorative plaster is so versatile, that it can be used in any types of interiors without taking into considerations technical details and the appearance of the material.
Let’s start with technical features.
TRAVERTINO material is permeable to vapor, that said, it means the material allows the walls to “breathe”. It’s a positive thing not only from the ecological point of view, not only it being non-toxic, but this feature also allows to use this material in areas where the surfaces may have a tendency to sag or where the temperatures change drastically. TRAVERTINO plaster contains only of natural components and is water-based, which is important to allergic people. TRAVERTINO is non-toxic and odorless.
TRAVERTINO plaster is also very firm due to one of its components: the micro-particles similar to fine sand. No small scratches, chips or other similar damage is a risk for this material on the walls. This coating suits fine for the public places with high visitor traffic, e.g. corridors, halls, technical compartments, garages, workshops, etc. It’s also ideal for rooms where pets reside. For the greater density TRAVERTINO plaster is covered with a layer of LuxDeco finish varnish; that creates additional firm protective layer and allows the surfaced to be wet-cleaned.
For interiors with high humidity финишный лак Proflux finish varnish may be used. It also created additional protective layer and saves the original color and pattern of the plaster for a long period of time.
TRAVERTINO’s appearance can fit into any type of interior if used with taste and creativeness; the result will not disappoint you.
TRAVERTINO’s base color is white, the material is dense. There are several options of its application and further decoration.
Technique #1: Unpigmented base layer is used to create various textures, which imitate torn stripes, “islands” or just even smooth areas. TRAVERTINO VAX with water-paint effect is applied right after the surface is dry; and then the surfaced gets tinted with water-based colorants. Tinting wax is applied with chaotic movements with a sponge or a paint-roll, with strokes of various intensity, as if spreading the surface of decorative coating. This creates the effect of aged walls or may simply underline the structure of the plaster in a new concept style.
Technique #2: TRAVERTINO new concept is tinted en-masse and is applied the same way as described above (Technique #1) imitating different shapes. The plaster can be allied in two layers, each tinted with a different color.
Technique #3: Each of the previous techniques can be used. On top of it the layer of tinted water-color effect TRAVERTINO VAX wax may be applied. PERLATO ARGENTO or PERLATO ORO may be used as the third layer. This is a translucent water-based varnish with gold or silver effect; the amount can be controlled by the number of layers. You won’t need TRAVERTINO VAX when tinting the finish varnish. PERLATO ARGENTO and PERLATO ORO are also applied with a sponge, paint-roll, or a brush with uneven strokes.
These techniques are viewed as the fundamental ones; they may be combined or contributed with different ones, thus creating something yet uncovered.
TRAVERTINO plaster is applied with a stainless-steel trowel or spatula. The layers are applied for one angle to another so that no junctures are visible.
The walls should be prepared for the application the same way as for usual wallpaper. If the walls were previously covered with plaster, it should be removed. If there are cracks in the surface, the front layer of the coating should be removed, the cracks are to be filled up again. All flaws should also be evened out and filled with plaster. After that the layer of KONTAKT GRUND is applied on top. To avoid future cracks interlining wallpaper is used, the junctures are carefully plastered and evened out with sand-paper. Each layer of the plaster is coated with a layer of deep-penetration primer, even in case interlining wallpaper is used. Once the surface is completely dry, you can start using TRAVERTINO decorative plaster. Each layer of decorative plaster, wax or varnish should be dried for no less than 8 to 16 hours. Once the surface is completely dry, the work is considered to be done.

Creation of “Map of The World” effect with TRAVERTINO
“Map of The World” – is a highly long-durable effect made with TRAVERTINO. The material is often used for both interiors and exteriors. “Map of The World” is based on polymer acrylic paint. If this technique is implemented with TRAVERTINO, the surface can be amazingly beautiful due to the unique combinations of pigments of different colors contained in polymer acryl.
Preparation of walls and material
It’s obligatory to prepare the walls before coating with TRAVERTINO. The walls should be dry, dust- and grease-free. Dust and grease decrease the adhesive ability of TRAVERTINO. The surface is covered with the primer with great care. The next step involves the coating with special primer paint which protects the surface from moisture.
There are several ways to prepare the material. First method involves the preparation of pigmented mixture. Since the material is already pigmented, there’s no need for additional further decoration. Second method presumes TRAVERTINO is used as is. In this case acrylic, silicone, or silicate paint layer is applied on the plaster. It’s important to use water-based paints with natural components.
Polishing of the walls
Polishing is needed to prepare needed texture for “The Map of The World” with TRAVERTINO. Polishing must result in an appropriate layer thickness. It needs to be equal to grain’s size. Otherwise the grains will be pushed inside TRAVERTINO dilution.
Excessive material should be evened out with TRAVERTINO. The trowel is held at an angle of 50 degrees against the surface of the wall. After the texture takes its preliminary shape, it’s polished with a trowel.
Coating with TRAVERTINO
TRAVERTINO should be applied to dry surface. It should be prepared the same way as for wall-paper. The surface is covered with deep-penetration primer and is dried.
The first layer should be applied evenly with the trowel. Its thickness should not exceed 2 millimeters. It facilitates the process if you use stainless-steel trowel or spatula with rounded edges. The layers should be applied starting from lowest to highest angle with extreme care, so that no junctures appear; the entire amount of the material is distributed evenly on the surface.
After first layer gets dry (which takes circa 8 hours), you can step up to the second one. The way you apply the second layer shapes the desire texture. The movements of the instrument can vary: stabbing, or varying angle strokes, or usual chaotic movements are acceptable.
Allow 30 minutes after the material gets dry. Then you can get to evening out of the decorative plaster with a trowel of a spatula. This procedure gives smoother surface or even becomes a little glossy. Both layers need about 24 hours to get dry. Only then should you cover the surface with waxes and varnishes.
To avoid junctures on the surface of TRAVERTINO, only coat at temperatures ranging from +5 to +40 degrees C. The leftovers of the materials can be removed with plain water. But it should be done while the dilution is still wet. Otherwise this procedure is carried out mechanically. Additional painting of the surface should be done in not less than 3 days after the plaster is coated (this concerns the water-based paints). Organic-solvents based paints may be applied only in a week-long period after drying.
The history of TRAVERTINO decorative plaster
TRAVERTINO decorative plaster organically combines the natural entity of the material with ancient traditions and modern-day application. The name TRAVERTINO goes back to Ancient Rome; the natural stone with the same name had been widely used there for construction purposes. TRAVERTINO plaster imitates this stone. Some information about travertine can be even found in ancient manuscripts. Besides that, you can see this type of interior decoration in ancient buildings; they are the witnesses of use of this material in Ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian civilizations. The recipe of TRAVERTINO was being passed from generation to generation; now we can see it as a texture decorative plaster called TRAVERTINO. Modern-days designers and architects utilize TRAVERTINO to imitate ancient walls. Besides than, rich color palette and variety of textures helps reconstruct drawings, patterns, and panels on the surfaces.
Eco-friendly TRAVERTINO is water-based; this feature lets walls “breathe”. As a result you get matt finish with different textures and colors. This decorative coating can be applied using different techniques, even as a texture with water-paint effect.
TRAVERTINO plaster can be perfectly well tinted en-masse and is being applied in two layers. These two can create the light-and-shadow effects on the bends of the texture. Two layers can be colored en-masse separately from each other but using similar shades of same color. This creates smooth gradients of a tint. In is no uncommon to use decorative plaster with additional tinting wax called TRAVERTINO WAX.
This coating should be applied in a number of textured layers. On top of it the water-paint effect wax is applied. For this purpose one should use a plain foam-rubber sponge chaotically and unevenly, applying different force in different variations. This helps achieve the water-paint and ancient walls effect.
You can add colorants to TRAVERTINO material itself; you can add it to the wax, or both at the same time. Pearl-effect PERLATO ORO varnish can add some “thrill and suspense”. It should be applied on top of textured plaster. As a result you get a wonderful shimmering surface with pearl-like shade. Also this varnish provides it with a glossy shine.
The effects and textures possible to be applied to TRAVERTINO allow everyone to pick something according to own taste. Total frost- and precipitation-resistance is an undisputed advantage of this material. More than that, it’s durable against mechanical impact and dirt-protected.
TRAVERTINO plaster is one of the top sellers among the product range of the similar materials. It’s hassle-free in application; provides customers with a perfect and firm coating. Another advantage of this plaster is that it doesn’t need any special maintenance. Since the material is moisture-resistant, it can be easily cleaned with a wet sponge. That’s all the care needed.
There is a huge variety of decorative plasters on the market now. The materials are manufactured in many countries: UK, Italy, Germany, etc. The decorative materials are usually categorized according to the application technique or the final result after coating. E.g., textured, mosaic ones are of these types. The product itself looks like a ready-to-use pastes.
TRAVERTINO can not only be used as the means to achieve the travertine effect. It can be used as a base for other interior decoration works or painting. Whichever technique you use, the result won’t disappoint you. It should fit into the space’s overall style.
TRAVERTINO’s advantages and flaws
If the surface is even and smooth, there is no need to use finish decoration on top of TRAVERTINO texture plaster. TRAVERTINO itself is capable to disguise small flaws of the surface.
If applied to plasterboard, wood, or particleboard, small cracks may appear along the junction lines due to moisture. But professionals are able to avoid this technological flaw. TRAVERTINO is considered one of the sturdiest materials, but if some area of the wall is repaired, this can be noticed. TRAVERTINO is a unique texture plaster, which can change the appearance of the walls not only inside the house, but also on the outer side too. It’s very long lasting and eco-friendly and allows you create a sophisticated style inside of the building. TRAVERTINO can be used to create drawings, similar to the ones by ancient masters. Different color and texture combinations give you the options to set up the lighting and create harmony in an interior. The easy of application facilitates the coating work. Nevertheless, the superb result can only be achieve by true professional, who has respective skill allowing to combine shades and textures.
