Distressed Italian Plaster
Italian plaster finish requires many layers
Time: 1 month

My client wanted the walls to look like very aged Italian plaster with flood damage and cracks. I had to pick-up some of the color of the brick in the fireplace, but didn't want it to match completely or the fireplace would visually disappear.

The ceiling is inspired by night sky shown in the Harry Potter movie, when the students first walk into the refectory. There is a spell on that room so the ceiling always looks like the sky outside. Much time was spent layering to produce the textured finish and ceiling.
