Venetian plaster is durable and long-wearing, so it can stand up to heavy use. The colors don't fade over time, so you won't have to repaint; you'll simply need to apply a fresh coat of wax every couple of years to keep it glossy. Dust and dirt won't permeate it, and you can clean it easily by wiping with a dry cloth.
Because of its all-natural composition, true Venetian plaster is ecofriendly and doesn't emit harmful VOCs or other compounds. Plus, lime has natural antibacterial properties, so it repels mold and mildew.
