My new bathroom
Since taking a class over a year ago, with a dear friend and talented artist-Linda Marstellar, I have been very interested in fresco, plasters, and all things Italian. So when remodeling my own bathroom this year, my husband (who also took her class) and I had a vision of decayed fresco walls, and crusty plasters of time gone by we looked to a fabulous book for inspiration. "Domus" was the book we used to try and emulate this look. To achieve these walls we used Travertino and Marmorino Italian Lime plasters from Dimensions in Florida. We custom tinted our plasters with pigments and troweled away! The ceiling is a stencil from Jan Dressler, we used pigment washes and metalics for this. To finish off the look we tinted our wax and rubbed it into the plaster for an overall aged appearance. The result MAGNIFICO!!
