Artisan Enhancements VP Antico is a synthetic polishing plaster used to create Venetian plaster finishes. Once applied, it will resemble a smooth honed finish. VP Antico has a neutral base which allows it to be easily tinted from light to dark colors (it can be tinted with Chalk Paint® or Mixols). You can even take it to your local paint store for tinting. It can be used to create texture and also relief stencil designs. It can also be mixed with paint to make your paint thicker. Try using it with Crackle Tex to create an “aged” look.
VP Antico is formulated for use on base coated walls and furniture.
VP Antico can be used with a trowel or rolled on for different results. It can be pushed through a stencil with a shaper on furniture pieces as well as walls.
Stir thoroughly before and during use. Let product air out if you want a thicker medium. Apply two thin coats using a trowel or spatula. If using a trowel, place material on edge at a 45°angle and cover entire area. If using a roller a 3/8” nap works best.
Seal container tightly and do not let freeze or expose to direct sunlight or extreme heat. Do not apply product when air and surface temperatures are below 50°F (10°C).
