Hello Everybody, I'd appreciate some advice. Is it a good time to get into plastering?

    Thanks for the feedback, you've gone out of your way, it's much appreciated.

    Yes definately a big difference from regular plastered walls and quite subtle also, not the vivid impact of the venetian (well not in these photos).

    I completely agree that venetian on it's own is not enough and leans more towards being a decorator, in my opinion (not that decorating is a bad trade), and having the plastering skill is important. That's the plan and we are beginning to get a good feeling about it.

    Sadly you are far away and it would be great if you could take him under your wing, even for a short time to give him the flavour of plastering.... But that would be too much to ask! So I'm grateful for your advice.

    All the best to you and your family.

    yes definatley nuts. i left the army to end up being a spread and at 28, i still miss the life.
    all in all there are much better jobs but its still a respectable path with could see a grand a week with a few blokes under him.

    all the best
