Venetian Gem® Hi-Lite


Venetian Gem® Hi-Lite is an iridescent material that can be used to provide a satiny, pearlescent effect over any of the products in the Venetian Gem® series. Superior reflective characteristics can be created with multi layer applications over a dark colored base. A smooth, subtle iridescent sheen can easily be created over a light colored plaster finish with a single layer. Available in seven colors, the application of this product as a final finish coat results in a gorgeous finish that is flexible, durable and water resistant.
