5: Finishing

Imagine having the ability to create colorful, custom stenciled concrete surfaces like these on floors, patios, countertops, tabletops, walls, and even canvas wall hangings. Now, you don’t have to just imagine it-you can DO IT!
We’ll show you how the SkimStone® decorative concrete finishing system combines with Modello® decorative masking stencils to produce functional, environmentally friendly, artistic surfaces with lasting beauty and durability in both interior and exterior environments.

Join Melanie Royals, Creative Director of Royal Design Studio and Modello® Designs and Katrina Johnson, technical and education coordinator for SkimStone® for an incredibly informative educational experience. Start your journey by watching the FREE INTRO VIDEO SERIES ABOVE to see how quickly you can transform new, or even tired out surfaces with color, texture, and design.

Then, explore HOW MUCH FARTHER you can take these two decorative mediums by viewing our Modello Designs/SkimStone Gallery below.

  • DIY Homeowners who want a less expensive alternative to other custom flooring options or replacing existing laminate, tile, and stone counter tops.

The full Mastering Modello Patterns and SkimStone Surfaces Virtual workshop includes:

  • 25 additional pre-recorded instructional videos that provide detailed, expert instruction on all aspects of working with Modello stencils and SkimStone surfaces. You will have access to this valuable information 24/7/365!

You can have INSTANT ACCESS to all of the above! I have previously taught a 2-day hands-on workshops on Modello stencil and SkimStone resurfacing techniques in my San Diego studio at a cost of $795 (and that didn’t even include travel and lodging!) Now, you can stay home and learn over double what I have previously taught in hands-on classes for less than half of that original cost.
