Additives for finishings. The thousand potentials of decorative bitumen

Among the additives for decorative plasters, it is impossible not to start by mentioning the Decorative bitumen: a natural hydrocarbon resin in powder form, used by applicators to create indoor effects. It is the ideal solution for spotted, dark brown finishes or to create a typical aged effect. Some examples? Two in particular are the effects proposed by Viero Decoratives using bitumen as an additive for wall finishes.  · 

  • Wood, created with decorative bitume and Vierpolast, is an effect with a Nordic atmosphere, inspired by tree bark. · 
  • Cenere, an effect with dusty tones and a meditative mood made with decorative bitumen and Vieroplast; Looking at it, it evokes the greyish effect of wood ash.


Decorative grains, additives to create roughness and movement on the wall

Decorative grains are additives based on stone grits and are characterised by delicate metallic reflections. They can be added to coarse mineral finishes (Marmorin Hydro, Marmorin Extra, Travertine) to achieve the typical salt and pepper effect but also lend themselves well to other creative combinations. What are two finishes in the Viero Decoratives catalogue that involve the use of decorative grains?

  • Granito, a great decoration classic, made with Decorative Grains and Marmorin Hydro.
  • Fermento, an extremely textured decorative effect designed for the inspirational line Bolgheri by Made in Tuscany, designed by the combination of Decorative Grains, E-breeze, Viero Vel, Silk and Ghibli. Watch the video to discover the application steps.
