We love our work so much that sometimes we have to make a movie out of it! Please enjoy watching us “transforming walls into works of art” LIVE and in action for yourself! These are some of our most advanced specialty finishes, which can all be customized to fit your personal taste and decor. Don’t forget to stop by our studio to see and feel these for yourself! We do believe our most high end designs must be seen in person to be appreciated completely. 

VENETIAN AND DECORATIVE PLASTERS IN MOTION

Layering of black venetian plaster

This is called a skim coat, a final coat of plaster which simultaneously burnishes the layers, creating a sheen on the stone surface underneath.

We used a plumb line to effect a linear look to this white venetian plaster.  See the finished product below!
