The chosen finish, either coarse (textured) or smooth, has a distinctive effect on the overall colour of a wall of Tierrafino clay plaster. Generally speaking, a smooth trowelled surface will show a deeper colour, therefore seeming darker than a wall finished with only a sponge to create a textured effect. The colours shown here display various types of finish. You are advised to always make a sample of the desired finish with the actual material obtained for your project.
