The Official Novacolor Academy UK
Our polished plaster courses give tradesmen that ‘extra capability’ when it comes to applying a bespoke artisan finish for clients. Whether this new skill is to enhance what you offer as a business or to improve your chances of getting clients, being able to create amazing finishes will only grow your incoming work and reputation.
As you know plaster is one of the most widely used finishes in the construction and decoration industries, there are many thousands of plasterers that have their own businesses or work as part of a larger team applying finishes to walls all around the UK.
In the world of wall finishes, there are few very high-end treatments that have the same impact as Marmorino. A number of commercial businesses in the UK are looking to have polished plaster walls as statement and feature pieces.
Here at Stucco & Stucco we have installed in commercial environments including Fazenda and Hendricks and in many private homes whether it’s feature fireplaces, bathrooms or statement walls in key rooms.

Having worked with Novacolor products extensively, understanding the quality and capability they have and using them to teach in the S&S training academy, I was incredibly motivated to become a Novacolor Ambassador.
Seeing other artists from around the world being recognised for their passion and skill by a company as highly respected within the industry as Novacolor was a key driver. I experienced both my clients and students looking up to the other Ambassadors with respect and recognising what it takes to achieve such a high level. I was and still am inspired by the quality, creativity, and professionalism of all those that have made ambassador and strive to not only achieve but maintain those high standards.
"... you won’t leave disappointed"
I have now been on 3 different courses at Stucco & Stucco and everyone of them has got better and better! Andy Robinson’s experience and knowledge is inspirational to say the least. I would recommend Stucco & Stucco to anyone, you won’t leave disappointed that’s for sure.
"I learnt so much..."
The 5-day course at Stucco & Stucco was amazing! Andy is a real talented and passionate guy, and that reflects in the course! I learnt so much during the 5 days from the practical side to branding, marketing and the business side! Can't thank Andy enough! Highly Recommended.
" I can’t thank them enough..."
Andy and Kevin came to my new build to work on an entrance hall double height wall for me. I can honestly say that when they had finished I was so happy with the result it made me cry. They are truly artists and dedicated to producing unique pieces of artwork that will last and be loved for many many years. I can’t thank them enough. Amazing.
"An excellent service..."
After visiting Andy at his showroom I can see why his training courses have become very popular in Yorkshire. I was looking at an alternative finish for a piece of furniture we had. With different finishes and colours Andy made various samples so we could see first hand. An excellent service and an even better finished product which now has pride of place in our room. Thanks.
"Can't speak highly enough..."
Fantastic product , service and workmanship . A classy outfit from start to finish ! Andy really does know his stuff and the unique finishes he does will wow anyone from Architects to hotel or home owners. We had a feature wall done in our house and a fire place too and they add the wow factor without a doubt . Can't speak highly enough
The choices and colours I could pick from were endless, and the only problem I had was deciding which i liked best. I Now have a brilliant feature in my living room that all my friends and family are jealous of. I recommend Stucco & Stucco 100% and it was a pleasure dealing with them from start to finish
