FirmoLux On-the-Wall Training

Sarasota Florida

May 20-21, $600

Enjoy two day training class conducted by Adrienne Wannamaker.  Adrienne is an accomplished decorative artist from Portland, Oregon.  Learn creative techniques of applying authentic Italian lime plaster.  You will learn the benefits of using natural lime plasters over store bought synthetics’ or lime-based products. Not only will you enjoy the ease of working with natural plaster, but the look, depth and style that has the “Wow” effect your customers are sure to rave about.

 

We will illustrate how easy plastering can be when using a great product like FirmoLux. You will create 7 beautiful plaster boards so you will have a clear understanding of each product, as well as, how to use each one to create a desired look, whether it be a soft elegant metallic or a rustic/contemporary concrete look.

 

The best part of the training will be "real wall" experience.  Learning on real walls adds a whole new level of training one can’t get when just doing sample boards.  We have an interesting project location in a 100 year old historical Sarasota building.  Working on real walls will build your confidence if you’re new to plasters.

  • Learn how to control the amount of movement in your finish and how to burnish properly which allows for more or less contrast in your colors as well as a polished or matte finish.

  • Find out which products are best used for different styles. Learn about prepping the surface, application techniques and the different characteristics of each product.

  • Learn the most popular classical architectural finishes in the design industry and the trending understated but highly desired classical “Italian Plaster look” and “Industrial Concrete look”.
