The Feature Wall Paint Course was developed to demonstrate and teach the application methods of various Italian paints that can be applied on interior walls and ceilings to create stunning features. This 2 day course closely connected with our other high-end Venetian plastering courses will equip you with the knowledge how to create high-end accents quickly and efficiently.
This course is held on a Saturday and Sunday in our Irish training centre, and you will be trained on walls, corners and large sample boards.
You will make sure you will be confident enough to take on any size of job with Italian designer paints, create solid and durable base coats and apply various protective and effect coatings.
How Much You Can Charge After the Course
A 10 square metre feature wall with Italian designer paints starts from 300 euros or pounds and can cost as much as 1200. Large areas cost generally start from 65 and can be as much as 120 per metre square (9 square feet) in local currency.

All our Venetian plaster and Italian decorative finish courses are held at our training centre at 20 Station Road, Castlewellan, BT31 9NF in huge, square metre purpose built industrial unit, only 1 hour 40 minutes drive from Dublin and 50 from Belfast.

Our methods and techniques are practical, well established and detail-oriented; we believe in the importance of a great course, but what we concentrate on is to make sure our clients are successful and can specify and do the job!
Our after-care and support is also second to none.
Q: Do you teach on walls?
A: Yes, you will work on walls and corners beside our small and large format panels.
Q: How can I become an approved applicator?
A: To be an approved applicator, you just need to come back for a quick assessment after you’ve completed your first feature wall! Please contact us for further details.
Q: Why don’t you teach more finishes? Some suppliers teach dozens!
A: You should be familiar with the various effects on the market, independent of manufacturers and trade names. That’s what we show and teach, selecting the best possible product for that particular effect!
Q: I’ve seen some nice finishes somewhere. Can you show me how it’s done?
A: Based on the number of bookings we would be happy to customise your course for a small additional fee if the effect falls within the range of Italian feature wall paints.
Q: Can you train our team at our premises?
A: Yes, for trade clients who would like to teach their team at their premises we have a special training package. Please contact our sales team for further details!
