Very grateful to be asked to complete this fireplace. Starting only with the original mantle. We set out to complete in its entirety. All material is lime plasters and lime paint. Sgraffito, pigments. Cement, block. Custom iron and cast molding. Client preferred large stone as the facade. Thank you to my help for your patience and support. Thanks @ecowallcoatings for the material! #ronfrancisplaster#ronfrancisart#ronfrancis#plaster#limeplaster#lime#hydrauliclime#exteriorplaster#stone#mason#design#french#mantle#fireplace#decorative#luxuryhome

The authentic direct POV of hand burnishing. A method by which one compresses, dries, polishes at once. An interaction of hands and science. Using a trained, small, steel trowel of the highest standard. This can be seen instantaneously. Using light, direct or indirect. One can see where she needs to be hit and hit again, and again until polished. By burnishing in such a way. The strong compression allows all previously applied layers to telegraph through. Giving a deep, translucent , marble look. Due to the fact, it is marble and limestone... basically. An artisan works with nature to accomplish what you see. Many applicators have chosen to use sandpaper and machines to accomplish all, but a shine. Lacking the intense depth of layering marble naturally has( just an opinion of mine) That way of working is a “look” and can be attractive to many. Considering the hardcore labor involved of hand burnishing. I’ve not seen the depth of the material with that process, personally. Therefore my efforts are painstaking. Honoring the originality from a historical standpoint and personal love of hands to wall. I’ve been asked so many times. “How do you get it to look that way” so... there it is. #ronfrancisplaster#ronfrancisart#ronfrancis#lifht#venetianplaster#stuccoveneziano#burnish#polish#handburnish#marble#limestone#natural#mineral-material#marblewalls#interior#design#handwork#laboroflove#authentic#carrera#riverbed

Having to go back to a client whose first floor leaked and was in need of some VP repair. I went up and took a new shot of this one with wide angle and a close up. I loved doing this ceiling.

Using @midas.metall as material. Inspiring the client with the vision. This , all glass, soon to be wine room. Now has a metal wall as it’s featured back drop. I created a hammered, troweled look to give continuity to the overall feel. The material has such abilities in controlling texture. I couldn’t wait to see the final look of wall. The random squares as 2nd layer is setting up for the Artwall coming soon. That will be the second feature. Which gives an open lounge appearance for parties and conversations over art and wine. Thank you Midas for allowing my hands on this product!

So the second one was scratched out last night. So lucky to have such various methods daily. I enjoy each for what they are! This method Sgraffito is ancient! Yet in this video I was able to create a more modern look by appealing to a new bar/lounge in Ybor Tampa ( The Barterhouse)Thx @chessalevendoski for wanting to jump in and learn the technique. Patience and love is required for such a large surface. Decoratively... some amazing things can happen. Old European walls and facades still showcase this method from years of wear and tear. It’s extremely durable. First coat for this one is is marmorino atop stucco. Then marmorino 600 tinted black..for a larger micron and depth for cutting into. Then limepaint for touch ups and lime seal to help from vandals😖. One more face and she is complete. More pics coming. #ronfrancis #ronfrancisart #ronfrancisplaster #sgraffito#scratchaway#plaster#mural#wall#facade#ybor#texture#mineral finish#exterior#architecture#organic#black&white#mural#thebarterhouse#lounge#bar-facade#

Another view of lobby area in the works: Everything I’ve attempted , or tried, even failed at. Got me here. Got me to each job I do. Something to say though about working in NYC! The meeting with Michael @michaeldigiacinto, not by chance in Orlando, who blessed me with this opportunity. Remembering techniques and solutions from years ago. Knowing of a material from using it and it using me. This job has brought gifts of being surrounded by great craftsman and professionals. Like the master carpenter @dejmcgee Brilliant work in this lobby. To Leroy Street Studios, the incredible visionary in design with impeccable execution. @leroystreetstudio The architects who raise the bar for high end accomplishments in NYC properties.
