All about Acrylic Plaster Systems & Coatings: $1,000 CAD

Our 2 Day course consists of creating decorative plaster effects on MDF boards as well as practising on a wall setup, to work on interior and exterior corners. This will help to balance the overall effect. You can expect to complete 19 sample boards (24 x 16-inch) total. 

This studio program covers our full range of Acrylic Plaster and Paint products from a variety of manufacturers. These include both Texturline & Urban brands, Valpaint systems .

With this program you qualify for a 15% discount on all tools and plaster bought on the last day of the studio class. Colour choice for sample plaster products will be done at the end of the first day and the goods will be supplied within 7 days or less depending on the quantities ordered and must be paid when ordering.

Take advantage of our studio offer on decorative coatings & tools. This will lead to creating more samples adapted for your clientele, building an expanded sample portfolio. Past experience has shown that an expanded sample portfolio can more than cover the cost of studio classes.

  • Acrylic Venetian Plaster in black as a two-color version burnished & waxed.
  • Sample of a Clay effect with a flat aspect.
