I've been thinking of some stuff along the same lines, but a bit different. I hope it doesn't take until the fall to attempt it, but we've got a construction event here called "Spontaneous Construction" where I'm thinking of giving it a go.

You do some beautiful work, and I think I could pull something like this off.....maybe not quite so good though

Wow!! Wow!! Wow!! You are good!
There is a guy in my area that does this. Amazing!
He did a wall in a factory that builds heavy equipment of all the pieces they have ever made. It is something like sixty feet long. Very nice, but you are better!! I am partial to outdoor scenes. Man I wish I had a taste of your talent! You are goooodddd! Did I already say, WOW?! Very nice!

Re: drywall sculpture


That is truly amazing, are clients calling steady, I am sure you could make just a living doing sculptures. Not to mention for sure leaving a personal and one of a kind touch on your work. Work like that you must have a very artistic talent, which goes far beyond what even the best finishers could ever possibly imagine doing.

there's a good amount gratification from keeping the client involved with the sculpt. throughout the process it then really becomes their picture too.their's big payback in that accomplishment outside of dollars and cents.i have no doubt that there's people on dwt who have the potential to be doing this type of work.(sir mixalot )i've seen your work.i'm looking forward to seeing some of their work showing up here in the near future.

It's already in the works my friend! Me and B,Mitch spoke about it on the phone last week. We are still working out the details together; but we will be putting out a video for the drywall community to benefit and learn from Bernie's process. I'm sure myself or Bernie will keep you posted as the time gets closer and we begin working on the video and the unveiling of his next masterpiece.
