heres where were currently at. just need to band the feature wall with cadoro and put some rivielo on the bar desk. So far the bar has had a little work. The joinery was ropey so say the least so we wrapped it in bendy ply to round it all off. two pack filled the join and a little sanding. Primed the whole face and sprayed some black ardesia top and bottom so the end effect really stands out well

This isnt a plaster finish but something we have been working on over the last week or so. Creating imitation beams for a terraced cottage. They look the part and are made up from no wood whatsoever

here are the end results









upstairs







Good beams mate what you using to stain these with

depends what finish it is. Anything polished like stucco will need sanding so anything new can key to it. after that you can apply a different colour stucco if you like. Any trowel applied paint finishes can be painted over as you normally would. If they have any texture to them though (normally do) then a light sand to flatten

cant remember if this is on but made another poker table. This time a grey stucco with metallic paint card slots. Still need to get a foam band upholstered in leather for the arm cushion



in the house with the 2 fireplaces we did quite a number of jobs there. It was a big house in huddersfield. Here is the bathroom our joiner tiled. To perfection too. we have a regular plumber who did all the water works.





@nickelarse

heres a dining room John did in stucco many years ago and the client wanted a change. She went with this ottacento. We sanded the top coat of stucco off the whole room. re primed the walls then 2 coats of finish and a lacquer

she specified two colours for different elevations within the room










will dig out some more when they are all uploaded. Just updated my photobucket. it hadnt been uploading pics as and when i took them. So just uploading them at moment but its been going for over 2 hours now and still not finished them all

Smallest one is called a kidney. Good for the small awkward bits where a trowel doesnt fit. Makes you feel like a giant when using it though. Cheers for the compliment

On wednesday morning John and I drove down to Henley on Thames to meet up with Clayplasterman to do a bit. It was a Japan meets Italy in Oxfordshire event. The job involved a lot of beer in the evening to break up the 2 day project at a bathroom studio called The Outhouse. there were 2 walls and a rectangular pilar/column involved. One wall recieved a japanese polished black izumi with a subtle izumi band and the other wall and column recieved a grey stucco polished plaster with a lighter grey stucco band.

Hats off to Paul as he did a fantastic job of prepping the walls with a base coat before we got there and everything was nice and flat and the floor was all masked up ready too. The owner has a theme of black, white and grey running throughout the showroom and we managed to put something together that both looked great and was to the clients taste. Great to see Paul again. Heres the pics to take a look at
