About my polished plastering courses and decorative paint effects courses

I teach Venetian polished plastering courses and decorative paint effects courses in London. All courses are designed to allow students to be able, when they have finished a course, to apply the finishes taught on the course at a professional level. My courses are therefore suitable for those who are already decorative professionals, and who want to extend their repertoire of finishes, those who are looking for a career change, or those who would like to learn to decorate their homes, using decorative faux finishes and Venetian polished plaster. All students will have a number of sample boards to take home from each course, which they can then use to show to potential clients. Please visit my gallery on this site for many examples of the the beautiful decorative finishes that can be learned on my polished plastering courses and my decorative paint effects courses. I teach all the faux finishes currently in vogue and in use: Broken colour effects, Dragging, Stippling, Colour washing & Mottling, Wood graining, Marbling, Gilding, Silk effect and Stoneblocking. I also teach Venetian Polished plastering courses , where students can learn five beautiful polished plaster finishes over two days.
