Special effects

I twisted Caits arm to come onto my FB page and give me a master class in her plaster finish. She is one of those friends you call about XY or Z and end up talking for hours and putting the world to rights! We all have friends like that right?

Cait Whitson also know as Painty Cait and is a legend in the painting refinishing world and beyond! There isn’t enough room to list her accomplishments but trust me when I tell you she has forgotten more than I know!

Special effect made easy.

Whitson’s Impasto Plaster is a super-versatile plaster capable of being used to create textured, embossed and low relief plaster finishes so I got Cait to walk me through a simple finish step by step on camera! Luckily she agreed to do a Facebook live so you can follow along with the steps too.

This was the second time I used it and I can’t tell you how thrilling it is to know that anyone can use this product on almost anything. Cait walked me through the very simple process on the video and my imagination was running wild with all the possibilities!

Impasto Plaster on furniture

The plaster has been made to be flexible unlike the original lime or marble plaster that is commonly used for those beautiful wall finishes. Whitson’s Impasto plaster is flexible! so it is perfect for furniture. One of the bonuses of it being an acrylic plaster is you don’t need a special primer, just normal prep, and away you go. Cait demonstrates how flexible it is!

There really are so many looks you can get with this plaster and Cait has a download on her website with 3 detailed different finishes you can try. It’s hardwearing when dry and if you are not adding a decorative finish to it there is no need for a topcoat.
