Shikkui Izumi : Highly polished Japanese plaster.
In traditional Shinto Buddhist beliefs, the plasters almost have a life and spirit of their own, and its proper application can be an almost religious experience. Shikkui Plaster is a traditional and innovative Japanese lime plaster made of slaked lime of high calcium purity with additives including seaweed extracts to help stability, soybean oil to improve workability and naturally boost water -repellent properties for exterior work, natural plant fibres to aid anti cracking (developed from centuries of earthquake experience) and other natural aggregates such as eggshells.
Shikkui Plaster formulations have been used widely throughout Japan for more than one thousand years, for both internal and external walls of houses, temples and castles, as well as for ceilings and specialist decorative purposes.
Marmorino Grassello Di Calce: The ancient Romans were known for their expertise in plaster, but the art was apparently lost until it was revived again during the Renaissance when it was widely used for frescos, including those in the ceiling of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel.
Venice became known for its plaster not only because of its beauty but also its durability. The Venetians used terra cotta scraps and leftover stone and marble mixed with lime to make a wall finish that was not only very fashionable, but also very practical since it resisted mildew even in very damp conditions - very important in a city built on water! It was often left white but can also be mixed with colors to give it a wide variety of decorative effects.
