Decorative Plaster

finished, under different lighting
Finished, under different lighting. I love this shade of blue that the homeowner selected. It looks like an exotic fabric made just for this room.  We painted several different shades of it on the wall where the artwork was visible. The plaster was custom tinted to match the base color so the light and dark reflected areas would be the average of the blue- it reminds me of the color and sheen of the fabric on the walls in the Doge’s suite at Hearst Castle, but no other wall in the world is exactly this color.

another angle showing pattern. this is my favorite wall finish of all. It is a pearlescent plaster that refracts light, and appears to glow, and move as you move through the room. I've never seen any other product so stunningly beautiful. I couldn't stop staring at it. None of the pictures can capture the movement or the glow from the sunlight. This finish is like a dream.

None of the pictures can capture the movement or the glow from the sunlight.  I’ve done a lot of this on ceilings, but on walls you can look at it closely. It appears deep and semi-translucent, like a thick slab of marble that was polished smooth, with reflective mica inside- like no other finish I’ve seen; it’s amazing, almost hypnotic.

Different time of day. All pictures were taken with the same camera. The walls appear to change color throughout the day, taking on the properties of light and glowing, cloudlike.

the way this finish reflects light, colors of furniture are reflected and they begin to blend.

This is my favorite wall finish of all. It is a pearlescent plaster that reflects light and appears to change depending on the time of day and the light source. This is a close up, and none of the pictures capture how stunning this really is. In the sunlight it appears to glow, like mother of pearl.
