we use lacquers more to protect a wet room from chemical cleaning sprays like domestos etc its already water proof. use a lacquer as a protector though.
Venetian Plaster became very popular here in the US on expensive homes. Every Painter, Drywaller & jack the lad who never plastered before became a so called expert at it. They drove the prices into the ground. There are some high quality Venetian products available and a lot of knock offs that are nothing more than overpriced crap. We came up with our own colored plaster system by adding pigment to the plaster, then put pigment into a sprayer (water down the pigment), trowel on the colored plaster (2 coats) and when still wet mist/spray the pigment into the plaster and trowel in various directions, if done right you will get a beautiful mottled colouring pattern for a tenth of the cost. The beauty of this process is that it requires plastering skills to achieve it so cuts out the non skilled people from attempting to apply it. We pay $15 for a 50Lb bag of plaster instead of paying approx $300 for a 4 gallon of Venetian. When done you can use bee's wax that will enhance the colour and seal the surface.
