Casts finishing

Natural or patinated plaster casts

All the casts produced in our laboratories are supplied in natural plaster or, on request, with surface coating.

Natural gypsum
Historically, it is the traditional cast most appreciated by lovers of sculptural art. The surface does not undergo any coating treatment. Over time, the gypsum will take on an increasingly lived appearance that will make it similar to stone. Visually, it is very difficult to distinguish an old plaster cast from an ancient marble.

Patinated gypsum
The superficial coating is performed to give the cast the appearance of stone or bronze. The more or less ancient effect and the different chromaticity are obtained through the use of pigments, earths, oxides, waxes, lacquers etc.
