Silk Plaster Training Day Review

By Richard Irons

I went onto the Silk Plaster Training Day yesterday, It was a pretty good day. I had the sample book sent out ages ago as I was keen back then. So when the course came up I jumped at it, especially at £99

There are loads of styles and colours to choose from. Some look really different and classy, but I did think some looked a bit naff. Everyone’s different though and has different tastes. I know a few people who are keen already for a new feature wall after my first post. I’ll be having one at home aswell on a sunken TV/Fireplace feature wall. Silk Plaster really is an eye opener!!

What I couldn’t get my head around was how cool the idea of it is. It can be patched at any time, as you can wet it back up. So any scrapes or damages in future are literely seconds of work to repair. no joints at all, it just all flows as one piece.

On the course you get to take away with you a bag of silk plaster, two trowels, a price list with  info about silk plaster and a range of different catologue type folders, all inclusive. They put on a bit of lunch with sandwiches, water, tea, coffee, biscuits and cake aswell.

A few of us bagged up some of the product we were using on the course to take away to make sample boards up or what ever. I would say the course is worth every penny if you’re keen to use silk plaster.

First thing I did when I got home was bang it on a couple of walls at home to see what it’s like when it’s dried. I’m sure the other half will be thrilled when she’s back to see all the different patches 😬😬

 

I’d recommend the Silk Plaster Training Day to anyone. I think I will make good money by offering my new skills to my client base. I may even have a play around with it in my own home.

      I loved it. After a day you can basically do everything you need. Then you come away from the course with the tools needed and catalogue to offer to your customers. They also give you some Silk Plaster to play around with. They cost £160. Give them a text or call 07951736212 for more info.
