Polished plaster is when marble dust and colour are added to plaster. The plaster is then applied to the wall and is polished to a totally smooth lustrous finish. This finish can be high gloss or satin. The patina mellows in time.

Polished plaster can be finished to resemble travertine, marble limestone, suede or many more finishes.It is a premium cost finish (but well worth it!)
