Rounded out the weekend by adding a layer of lime soap over a plaster finish I did for our project in Varsity. It was a whole house reno. Started out all 80’s “yikes” and is now all timeless and classy instead!
Not many of you may know this, but I used to be a master plaster technician and instructor many moons ago. Toured Canada giving demonstrations and skill classes for pro applicators back in the 90’s. Gave it up when my knees couldn’t take the daily fourteen foot ladder climb any more…that’s when I turned full time to design. No regrets whatsoever!!
Have to say though, I do miss it. It’s so methodical and rewarding…not to mention I had some pretty sweet biceps 💪🏻 and abs back in the day thanks to all that physical work!!
So I may miss it, but will definitely NOT be going back to it as a career! TOTAL RESPECT for the guys and gals that work their magic and get a huge daily workout putting up plaster finishes 5 days a week. You folks rock!! 🙌🏻
It’s a demanding job, and we need to value the skill and art that is such an important part of those gorgeous walls, fireplaces and range hoods that are so trendy again.
So if any of you are thinking of calling on me to help with a plaster project …. I will respectfully decline, and then will happily pass you some phone numbers of amazing plaster artisans in your area😁
