Martin Alan Hirsch achieved his fame by visiting Europe and replicating classic historic walls. By viewing these European timeless real walls, he masterfully created his now famous collection of finishes creating warmth and antiquity. Utilizing textural products in combination with Old World color mixtures... he was able to reveal looks that age and passage of time, as well as exposure to the elements became the inspiration of his Old World finishes.. A variety of activated textural finishes mimic these classic old stone houses, wineries, as well as castle and chapel walls..

Morey Curtis Dunbar is a master of the "Black & White" genre.
Always "au courant"...Black & White is a basic for fashion and design every year, but never has it been more true than now. All top design magazines have featured black and white interiors, some starkly contemporary, some super glamorous, some soft and romantic. In addition, black and white allows you to study the bones of your finish, to revel in texture and sheen without the distraction of color. Black, white and every shade in between is always an elegant choice. Morey will see to it that These finishes will give you the confidence to enhance your portfolio, expand your product knowledge, enhance your application techniques and expand upon current design trends.

Imagine your favorite glamorous Hollywood movie. Whether it be Gone With The Wind, The Women, White Christmas, a Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers dance-a-thon, a Sophia Loren fest or a Marilyn Monroe film... all the interiors and fashions were designed as jewel boxes to enhance the performer. These finishes were inspired by such movies. From subtle to stunning, neutral to eye popping, these finishes will bring you back to Hollywood's heyday, a time when men were men and women were divine! Give your clients these vintage inspired, yet undeniably contemporary looks.

For more information...go to:

As we see what designers throughout the world are using in residential as well as commercial spaces, as the economy turns the corner, as building is on the rise, we as decorative artists need to be ready to take our finishes to the next level. That is what this workshop will attain.
From simple two step finishes to several step finishes that will awe you as well as your clientele.
I look forward to you joining this workshop as Morey Curtis Dunbar and I work diligently to provide you with the combined 50 years of experience bringing your portfolio to a level never before achieved.
See you in class!
