Fast forward to 1998; Kristen was about to apply that same plaster finish to her client’s walls. After a brief demonstration of technique, Kristen handed the trowel to her new assistant Steve Mandell to try his hand at it. Kristen watched as he made one swipe of the trowel, then a second. Steve stopped, stood back, looked at the trowel, looked at the wall, then at Kristen and smiling in amazement said,“I can’t believe how easy this is... You HAVE TO market this stuff!!”
So.... two years later; with label, logo and brochure designs; MSDS, patent and trademark filings; manufacturing agreements, retailer negotiations, market research and 42 fabulous colors later, she did!!

Our hearts desire is to empower anyone with a creative itch-to-scratch with an effortless and beautiful way to make their drea
