  • MARMORINO ESSENTIAL: The #1 most popular use for our Flamingo Sponge Float is smoothing the first coat of matte marmorino or tadelakt. These high-end finishes are applied with a steel trowel then smoothed with a wet sponge. Matte plaster is on-trend and this tool should be in your toolkit to get the right look.
  • APPLY TOPCOATS AND SEALERS: Use the sponge trowel anywhere you might use a sponge or rag and give your wrists a break with our handle grip. We love to use a sponge trowel to apply most clear sealers and metallic waxes to Venetian plaster. Just remember that unsealed plaster is porous so use a clear sealer first before adding a color wash or mica powders.
  • SHOW OFF YOUR STYLE: Bold pink handle because plaster finishing is not just a job. You create unbelievable walls. You're a badass and you love what you do! Wash them, reuse them, cherish your tools.
  • FANTASTIC QUALITY, BECAUSE YOU DESERVE IT: We've been manufacturing and testing the highest quality stucco tools in Italy for over 50 years.

The Modern Props for Architectural Work on a Home

Technology can help home builders leave no corner, of any piece, undone. Today, the home building ritual involves architectural professionals who use both old free hand tools and modern technological devices. Saws and software are the props.

Old Tools For The Hands

The owner can expect most the work will be done by professionals contracted to complete the parts of the plan who bring hand tools to the site. Free hand work sets home building apart from common labor that relies more on strength and effort. The hands have the most fitting abilities for creating the walls, roofs and spaces for living.

For the occasion, an architect will arrive with a compass and a carpenter with saws. Tough effort is not needed. The architect maps out the plan using the fine precision of the compass. The carpenter crafts the natural woods into sophisticated pieces of a stable home using the hand saws.

Devices That Improve Work

A fair amount of the modern tasks involve technological devices. Intricate work is neat and concise when done with technology that lets a professional have a full freedom of thought and action. From the frame to the finish, the many layers of the design can be mastered.

An architect models a home piece by piece. All the pieces can be arranged into a whole in AutoCAD. The computer aids design by giving the designer the ability to artfully compose all the impressions upon the sense of sight a resident will experience. With the model built, a viewer can pass through the house along any of the set of pathways and view the painted scene from any angle and distance.

Intelligent technology reduces redundant tasks. Each artistic design is converted into descriptive measures and specifications. In a full home, this entails thousands of calculations. Doing the numbers by hand is better for knowing every basic fact and capacity, but many additions and subtractions can be left out when the proven invention, the calculator, is put into service. Time can be dedicated to the algebra, geometry and calculus needed for sophisticated architectural designs, like flowers.

Architecture is also a work of study. Plans and reports prepare craftsman, engineers and laborers on the right goals and methods, and keep stock of the progress. A home owner can later reference the written documents to know how to maintain the home. Making complete, and sometimes lengthy, reports is quicker using Microsoft Word for the typing and formatting. Carefully arranged visual records are readily made on Adobe's Illustrator and Photoshop.

The glory of the construction is a little greater when the team uses modern technology. Technology aided design is closer to the top idea created in the imagination. The home can be splendid.
