Tonachino Toscano is an Italian lime based render made of slaked lime, river sand and marble dust. It has a warmth and matt finish with a velvet feel and a dramatic sand finish appearance. It is the typical product used in the houses of Tuscany to create an aged and weathered look. Easy to apply and exceptionally durable.


TONACHINO TOSCANO is a wall finishing coating, based on seasoned and filtered lime-putty, inert natural fillers and special binding additives.

It is easy to apply and it has an extremely good filling power and a natural resistance to moulds and bacteria  

TONACHINO TOSCANO is suitable for finish coating for internal and external wall surfaces. It is perfectly stable over time and it maintains its unaltered breathability of the base with regard to the high permeability to water vapour

TONACHINO TOSCANO is sold in white base.

Note: Advanced Spirito Libero recomends that our entire range of lime based natural materials is used only by highly skilled or licensed tradespeople with extensive experience in this field. It is the responsibility of the applicator to understand the application method and the procedure involved in order to obtain a satisfactory outcome. Advanced Spirito Libero recomends that architects, builders and clients appoint only experienced applicators in the relevant lime-based materials to ensure they'll be able to deliver the same finish as per the sample shown.

As with any lime-based material this product may change the appearance over time due to the ageing process caused by weather conditions"
To slow down this process the use of siloxane impregnating sealer is recomended over time.

For exteriors please protect treated surfaces from raining during application and for the time required to allow product to fully harden (48h), fail to do so, some trace of efflorescence might appear and no warranty will be applied.

Ensure that a sufficient quantity of the same batch is available to complete the entire job or at least to complete whole sections that will not reveal differences in shade.

Advanced Spirito Libero provides no warranty expressed or implied against damage due to movement of the substrate structure.

Following the Australian Building Code we do not suggest the installation of this product inside the shower area.

To obtain a better job it is advisable to use a VENETIAN PLASTER TROWEL, trying to use it in a homogeneous way.

Once the first coat is applied, the process has to be complete within 48h.




It is possible to apply the second coat only when the first one is totally dry and it is important to apply it in a homogenous way creating a smooth surface without any lump or imperfection and ready for the finishing process.


To apply this specific finishing you should use a venetian plaster trowel, compacting the product with pressure and smoothing the surface any time soon, before it dries.



To apply this specific finishing you should use a sponge float, doing a circular movements on the surface any time soon, before it dries.

In case of fast drying to complete the surface finishing it is possible to moisten it with clean water with a mist sprayer. When you deal with coloured products, try to not moisten the surface, because the humidifying fades the pigments creating clearer patches.



After 48hours apply 1 coats of MARMORINO SHIELD.
