The decorative finish originated from the 1st century. It’s used to imitate natural stone and surfaces. The technique involves a lot of layers with short overlapping strokes. The Roman Empire popularized the technique by using it inside cathedrals and other structures. Throughout history, Venetian plaster has been seen in art, architecture, and design.
