Hi All!  I FINALLY got together some fresh new samples for an Advanced Class!  It is a 2 day class, 8 sample boards.  We'll be doing an embedded stencil embellished with Swarovski crystals, "Modello", embedded leaves, and new ways of using some of your favorite plasters. 
I've also got another class I've put together called Modern Classics.  This class is for those of you that need to update your portfolio with some new colors.  We'll also be doing Travertino and Marmorino boards over Fix-a-Quartz for a simplified and more cost effective application method.  Also included is one of the new Metallos and as a bonus, a stencil embellished board.  This class is also open to beginners, but is NOT a certified applicator class.  It serves as an introduction to Safra if you are looking for a shorter class.  This is a 3 day class where we will be doing 12 boards.

Here is direct link to the schedule where you can view more details about the classes, check the dates, see some of the boards, and sign up for a class.  I'd love to see you all here in Ohio!

Your right Charlie, thanks. The more I think about it, the more I realize that especially with applying the Prontomuro, that the troweling action could loosen the paper. So without a doubt I'm going to remove it. Like I said before works good with drywall texture, but thats easier to fix if something goes wrong.
           Thanks for the info!

Hi Kory and welcome!

Your prep is good and works for the paper that we have seen.  As you said, if in doubt, remove it.

Hello everyone,
 I was wondering if anyone has had any experience applying the plasters over wallpapered walls. I have always removed the paper and then did all the proper drywall finish work but I have a job that has some real 'tight" wallpaper, the kind that is almost impossible to remove using any method. I have done many drywall texturing jobs over this kind of surface, I usually use the white shellac or oil based primer, then the finish work and texture right over that with excellent results. But if any doubt to the reliability of the paper I always remove it. Just wondered if thats something anyone has had to deal with. Also Doyle this is my first post on this new format and I took the class October 2006. If anyone has any input to this I would appreciate it
