Hi all.

My name is Oscar Urruela.

I'm artisan plasterer with 25 years experience in the profession and is currently embarked on the project to recover through its teaching, the classic method of preparation stucco marble or scagliola, this technique fall into oblivion and decorative arts more important in the history of architecture.
To do this, I created a website, which offer a training program, which, furnish the student with the necessary knowledge to get started in the office, allowing the application of learning to different contexts of work: design, restaurants, art, construction ...

This is the link www.stuccomarble.com

I would like to know your opinion

I hope you find interesting.

A greeting.

Aren't you going to chat with us Oscar? If you want to find some students you'll have to work it a little. It's your first post and you're looking to make money. Be social first:yes:.
So, being from Spain, did you ever run with the bulls? If so, were you ever gored?

But 1st he will half to beg to his wife, to do a wall in his house.

Hahaha! Naw, i'll just convince a client that it would make an amazing accentuating wall in their house! And film the video there. I actually really do want to try this. So I will let you know what happens! Should be a cool video! I look forward to trying it. :thumbsup:

response stucco marble topic

Hi all.

Thanks for your comments and sorry for taking to answer, I have been a few days in the mountains and have not had internet.
I do not run the festival was because I was afraid of people. We kill bulls but they are helpless.
Of course I hung my page to promote the stucco marble, as you can see it, I am developing a project to recover this extraordinary but unknown art through its dissemination and teaching.
I don´t want the market and industrialize this technique, my interest is to convey my knowledge to students, maintaining the traditional technique.
The poor quality of current teaching, has made the stucco marble is known today, has nothing to do with the thousands of jobs being performed worldwide using this technique.
The months of July and August he traveled to Buenos Aires to take a particular course and a seminar through the Argentine economy ministry for museum curators and conservators of heritage.
In September he traveled to Vancouver for five months to improve my English, which is pretty basic and I am forming a group in town to give a seminar, although I have some interest in the country but I think I will not have time.
Any information you need regarding the technique or the courses do not hesitate to write.
Apologize for my English

Greetings to all.

Oscar Urruela
