easier way to 5 star finish. the D-mix


Hi Guys.
I use a system over 25 years now and I like to share the D-Mix
with the forum.
Before I start, I hope I don't violate any rules.
The D-Mix makes finishing easier and the results are like a plaster finish.
Easy to learn and very forgiving. no multiple coats and no sanding.
Requires some skill but not the art of plastering.
I will post after I get the green light.

thanks
dino

By ''5 star finish', are you meaning 'level 5 finish'? If you do go ahead and post, the thread should probably be in the Drywall Finishing section.

Re: easier way to 5 star finish. the D-mix


This guy has been getting laughed off forums for years. "Please forgive, I come from Greece for only to be helping." Has 'em rolling in the aisles everytime.

He wants you to mix plaster of paris with AP mud and PVA primer and skim with it. I'm sure the manufacturers of all 3 would warranty that no problem. Then he's going to sell you a 'certification.'

But now he'll get upset and take his magical mix away and never tell us the secret to EZ money. I'm sure I have now ruined it for everyone. Please forgive. I come from Australia for only to be helping.

Re: easier way to 5 star finish. the D-mix


here is one old post.

http://forums.finehomebuilding.com/b...shipper?page=2

and another.
(post #97524, reply #149 of 149)

awhile back

I said I was going to try the D-mix on a space that will be covered by cabinets in the kitchen and as soon as I did that it was real evident how easy it was so I went right out into another room.

The Home Owners were in shock and awe. The husband got so excited when I told him the EZ way....When I came back the next morning, he had started into the rest of the house. He finished the whole house days later. He's a believer.

This guy is pretty much a desk jockey. So imagine my suprise and everyone elses when some regular joe can do this. WOW.

Now that the walls are painted the results are pretty amazing. Im looking foward to the next job. Only hoping the HO doesnt jump in like this guy.

I can charge $9.00/SF huh?

I can level 5 a few ways. But as Vanman says, bring it on. Say what you want to say. I'd start a new thread in the Drywall Finishing section, though.

Then speak your peace already. But if you had something cool to share and it was free to all you would have simply done it. You have the stench of a spammer about you, sir. Prove me wrong.

The gauntlet is down, ycf dino.
