Banding is created by
superimposing one finish upon another, using identical or contrasting finishes,
or the carefully controlled application of a colourwash. Blockwork creates the
ultimate in faux stone effects, but without the weight or thickness of natural
stone. The texture and tone can be varied from block to block, reflecting the
natural variations found in stone walls. The Panel technique uses bands and a
combination of finishes, and provides an elegant effect, suited to both large
and smaller areas, and lending a sense of stature to the room.
Application of corporate logos and graphic
designs demands the highest standards of plasterwork and detail. Armourcoat is
the recognised leader in this field, having developed special techniques for
logo inclusion and surface design application. Circular Columns or Curves give
the appearance of polished stone at a fraction of the cost. Even large columns
can appear totally seamless, as if cut from a single vast lump of stone.
