This comprehensive program is the ultimate in decorative lime-based plaster finishes. You can except to complete 20 or more samples on 24” x 16” MDF Boards (Size due to weight has been reduced).

We cover the basic techniques, with images that match to the Coverit catalogue often used as a reference by architects and designers. Going further we will be applying specialty finishes we have been proven over the past 20 years.

Layering varies grain sizes is key for lime-based decorative finishes. Fine is a typical lime plaster texture, Medium is for coarse aspect Tuscan looks. Another plaster we included is Carrara coarse. a heavy texture that can be polished on the high spots. Intonachino in varies grain sizes X fine is a replacement for clay plaster but more solid.

You qualify for a 15% discount on all tools and plaster bought during the class. Also included is a CO.ME Bianko medium Trowel in a leather protective wallet.

CO.ME Bianko trowels are the best for decorative plaster finishes because they leave no carbon marks on white plaster. We package untinted samples size plasters (quarts) as requested at discounted prices. At the class end, many participants who want specific colours can order them to take away at the end of the course. Waxes and additives are also available in 8oz jars.
