This method of interiour decorating is done my spreading a thin layer of plaster on the wall, then painting it while it's still wet. Many churches in Russia are done in this manner. What's it called?

Don't Know myself what it is called, but it sounds brilliant. I've been in the business of much home repair over the years and this is so much better than waiting on it to dry and then proceed.

Hope you are well MPMARTIN and the rest of you as well.
Peace to you all.

PESCreate,

The method I mentioned above is called "INTONACO". It is usually done within a defined area before moving on. Some of the Russian Orthodox chuches I've see are absolutely breathtaking and have been restored, sadlt, many have fallen into disrepair.

Did you know the president and Congress take their orders from the bankers and big business. That's why they can never seem to fulfill their campaign promises. The big boys won't let them.
