Proceed® Smooth Translucent Texture is a smooth acrylic translucent plaster glaze medium that is used to create effects that mimic lime and Venetian Plasters and other faux finishes. It is burnishable when dry to reveal tool marks and depth of translucent color.

Please view the following link for the Application Guide



  • Can be tinted, troweled, sanded, thinned and sprayed or rolled.
  • A burnishable texture that creates the look of “venetian plaster”.
  • Can be tinted white or black.
  • Very easy to apply, "without drag".
  • Fast drying.
  • View testing results for Stain Resistance

How do I apply Smooth Translucent Texture?

  • Apply to a clean and dry substrate. Apply first coat in irregular sections. Mix colors as desired by applying new material to the wet surface and working into the first coat with a trowel to desired base texture, blending sections together. Apply subsequent coats by trowel, removing excess material to create a smooth surface. Wet or dry burnish with a trowel. Full hardness is developed in 2 - 4 weeks. Clean tools with soap and water. Store between 50º - 80ºF.
  • Traditional Venetian Plaster technique, create the layered look without the work and layers or burnishing when you combine it with Smooth Transparent Glazing Texture.

How do I tint Smooth Translucent Texture?

  • Tint with Proceed Pigment Dispersions. Use high transparency pigments to maximize translucency of the final finish. High-hiding pigments will result in an opaque finish. Do not add more than 10% dispersion. May also be tinted with Proceed Metallic Mediums. Always test tint ratio before use. Use of more than recommended percentage could cause water sensitivity.
  • For more information please review How to Tint the Proceed Products.

Flame Spread Rating

Golden Artist Colors, Inc. has not performed testing to assign a rate of flame spread for Golden water-based acrylic paints and mediums. However, given their formulation, our water-based products would be expected to perform similarly to typical latex house paints in regard to their ability to support combustion.
