I'm new to the forum and just wanted to say hello. So, hello. I'm in the process of doing some painting and other updates to my house. I've been doing painting for years (just personally, and I help out a professional painter from time to time), and a long time ago I hung wallpaper as a gig. Mostly I just want to learn things. I've used Venetian Plaster before with stunning outcomes, done some ragging techniques, even used sand paint (ugh! What a mess! but it was gorgeous when finally done). I'd like to learn how to overlay concrete onto countertops and retile my shower, but that's for later. Right now, just painting. Lots and lots of painting!
