Browning plaster is a decorative plaster that’s used as a base for paint and other decorative endeavours. It’s very similar to bonding plaster, but more absorbent, and thus most useful with more absorbent surfaces. They are used by professional plasterers as an undercoat for paint and adornments. It’s a versatile base for painting, good mouldings and decorations.

It is perhaps not as versatile as bonding plaster and is used more specifically where a little more visual ‘character’ and texture is sought. Browning plaster can be coloured and made more or less absorbent – the amount of water it retains – however, browning plaster cannot be used on its own.
