I have been a plasterer for 40 years, I have plastered, stuccoed and, restored, personally over 10,000 jobs. I do real frescos. I do real Venetian plaster. I do lath and plaster. I never fell for the e.i.f.s. scam. I am a purest.
I was raised by a mother who was a world class pinup artist and a father who was a special forces Marine. Who was killed. My grandfather was a sand and gravel guru. I have a degree from a top ten school of bus. I also have a FINE ART degree.
I'AM AN ARTIST FIRST AND ALWAYS, I have broken pretty well every bone in my body PLASTERING. Including my back; I fell over 30 feet on concrete in 2005 I was critical on that one. Fell while doing a FRESCO and broke my wrist in 2008. SEE ABOVE PHOTO; going too fast, I work by myself for the most part.
Doing real frescos can be very dangerous; you have to paint the pigment while it’s wet. Working alone on a fresco, Is NOT SOMETHING I RECOMMEND, Even the (FRESCOS *REAL AND *DRY, ALL YOU ARTIST ) great; RIVERA HAD WHOLE TEAMS WORKING WITHHIM. the tree in the ogden tree house museum , two stories high it is made from lath and paster. I carved the plaster with a tool ,I made from sheet metal, to give it the affects of a hollow tree. 2006 I am a artist first and always. kevin d. blanch REAL VENETIAN PLASTER
