Polished plaster is a term for the finish of some plasters and for the description of new and updated forms of traditional Italian plaster finishes. The term covers a whole range of decorative plaster finishes—from the very highly polished Venetian plaster and Marmorino to the rugged look of textured polished plasters. Polished plaster itself tends to consist of slaked lime, marble dust, and/or marble chips, which give each plaster its distinctive look.

Polished plaster is mainly used internally, on walls and ceilings, to give a finish that looks like polished marble, concrete, or stone. Such plasters are usually applied over a primer and basecoat base, Followed by several topcoats to achieve the desired result, they are finished (burnished) with a specialized inox steel trowel to a smooth glass-like lasta. Polished plaster is usually sealed with a protective layer of wax.
