Hi All, i run my own plastering company and have been interested in polished plastering for a while and was thinking of doing a course at goldtrowel. Are clients hard to come by for this type of plastering? and how long does it take to realy get the hang of it as im not expecting to do the course and come out the end of it an expert. Are there greater rewards from this type of plastering as ive noticed the meterage prices are quite high or is this due to the expense of materials?

do it mate, you wont regret it, Most people have done their venetian with goldtrowel, including myself. Ive been around a few training centres for this, all overpriced, and you get do do sample boards only? and most use acrylic venetian (which is s**t)
But what happens after you leave the course and u get asked to do a massive wall..??
Will your sample boards carry u through? ....no

At Goldtrowel you do full size walls, ceilings the lot and endless amounts of sample boards with all
sorts of finishes...and lifetime support afterwards!

Yeah i read flynny's review on goldtrowel. id prob do that as well advertise on my website as a service provided but id want to get a few jobs under my belt before pushing it properly.

im guessin its kinda hard to find the work for this venetian but i guess its all about finding the right client so instead of hitting the mass market go for the top end job and state that the kitchens and bathrooms will be done in marble finish plaster, show them a sample and if you got a builder chargin £300,000 for a house im sure that with a bit of salesmanship you can persuade them to spend a little more of the build cost to get a great price for the house, so basically go for it mate you never know where its going to lead you!
