In this renovation, the homeowner knew exactly what he wanted: A great living space with a lot of detail.
I’m not kidding, he left no corner out. Now that’s my kind of attention to detail!
I was commissioned to turn this doorway from “BLAH!” to “WOW!”
To do that, I chose to use Intonachino. I kicked it off with tinting the materials to a light orange/tan, using three colours to mix it from scratch: Raw Sienna, Red Oxide and Raw Umber (but the links are not the actual brands of the materials I use to tint my plaster; just great information pages for you to check out).
After, the finish was left to sit and cure for a few days before I returned to apply the all-important penetrating sealant before doing a beautiful raw umber glaze.
What do you think about this kind of finish?
