Authentic lime plasters and decorative paints

Concrete Finish

Golmex Plaster is a concrete finish that is a hydrated lime and polymer concrete mix. Designers and contractors have been asking for a concrete mix that can be applied in the same manner as plaster for unique industrial finishing effects. Meoded answered their call with a specially formulated substrate that offers superior adhesion, workability and durability. The concrete finish comes packaged as a 5 gallon dry powder mixture that you simply add water to. With real cement inside, it gives you the concrete finish you’re looking for. Depending on surface conditions, you can expect an average wall coverage of 80 to 125 square feet when applied with a 1/16th” thickness. Economical and the perfect faux cement alternative to cast concrete.

Decorative Paints

Meoded's decorative paints are visually stunning and aesthetically pleasing, with textures that sparkle and shine. Sapphire Metallic is a unique low VOC pearlescent paint that gives walls, metal, trim, furniture, or any other paintable surface a rich, opulent look of shimmering satin. Meoded's Crystal Brush paint brings to life interior surfaces with a sparkling texture accented by artificial and natural daylight. To complement their line of decorative paints they also created the Pearlas Velvet and Saphire Metallic lines. To push the boundaries of decorative paints, they created Cassiopeia.

Lime Plasters

Meoded's Lime Plasters are easy to use, eco friendly, authentic, lime-based, zero VOC liquid plasters. They have four types of Lime Plasters: Stucco Lamundo, Tonachino Firenze, Marmorino Tintoretto, and Marmorino Palladino. Stucco Lamundo is an indoor Venetian plaster that features easy application and exceptional durability. The tint-able paste produces a highly polished, marble-like finish on most interior surfaces. The Marmorino Tintoretto is a flat finish Venetian plaster suitable for interior and exterior applications. Their Tonachino Firenze Lime Plaster is a Venetian plaster that has an authentic “Old World” sand finish. Marmorino Palladino has a large marble grain and is best for creating stone and other creative finishes.
