Since the day when the doors of
Buon Fresco Wall Artistry opened, the founder, Victoria Bingham,
developed exquisite techniques that won the studio numerous awards, an abundance of media attention and an international
following of clients and students.
Many of these techniques
were made possible by the development of precision decorative
art tools. Some of these fine tools include:
A Venetian Plaster tool for precise applications
of Venetian Plaster to rounded surfaces such as Groin Vault
Domed Ceilings and Columns - for marbling or just polishing.

We love stencils which, at a reasonable cost, add tremendously to
the impact of a wall finish.
Our stencils are laser cut
from 7 Mil Mylar, and are pattern designed so that they may be moved around a room for
flow & connectivity purposes, and used
up to 5 times during a project.

Leaf Design of Tinted Kolcaustico Venetian Plaster Stenciled
over base of Venetian Plaster using the MushroomTM
The Mushroom is an extraordinary stenciling applicator designed
to apply, finesse, and burnish paint, plaster or wax medium
through a stencil, all the while
the tool is actually holding the edges of the stencil in
place while you work!
You'll be amazed at how quick and
accurate the process of stenciling your walls and surfaces
will become! Note: The Mushroom is washable & reusable
when used with latex or water based products.
Mushrooms come in a set of 3- sizes, in a 'faux silk' pouch for air drying the
mushrooms after cleaning.
The Mushroom's remarkable
design affords a precision
result with razor sharp registration lines even while applying
Venetian Plaster over Venetian Plaster. [see
example photo left]
The Mushroom also
works FAST! The
stencil tools come in 2 sizes; a
smaller tool to accommodate the tiniest details of your most
intricately cut stencil design, and a large size to rapidly
fill in areas of a larger stencil design.

What have we done with Watermax?
Easier to tell what haven't we done with Watermax!
Buon Fresco has finished thousands of
square feet of Glazing to include Scumble Glazing with
cheesecloth, Strie' - a Fine Brushed finish
[usually suicidal to attempt with anything but an Oil Glaze] and
Kitchen Cabinetry Finishes over Wood. We finished the
majority of the Saudi Arabian Ambassador's
residence in Virginia using Water Max!
This glaze stays open
longer than oil,
yet it dries smooth and soft like an oil glaze!
The Glaze may be
RE-WORKED just like oil! If you miss or mess up, just
wipe it off or roll over it, and start again! Try that
