This summer, during the high heat of summer, my team and I worked on a historic residence in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
Among other projects in the house, I was asked to imitate marble over the wooden base for their claw-foot tub. This is an affective technique that is perfect for an area where 70% of the surface will be masked by the tub. These kinds of projects are always fun because you can go a little nuts on the drama. Enjoy my old-school, job site video!
Mats Carlsson started as a Swedish house painter in the 1970′s. A 1991 chance encounter with a master painter changed his life forever. He later studied at Institut Yannick Guegan and became the first Scandinavian graduate. Mats and his colleague Lotta Olsson have successfully run a two-year decorative painting program at their Palm Fine Arts educational centre since 1996. Palm Fine Arts offers “Summer Master Classes” taught in English.
