ARTisAn Objective® Workshop MAS-06 – Lithomex Brick & Stone Surface Repair

1 Day – 8:00am to 2:30pm

Rather than cutting out and replacing damaged or decaying brick and stone, impressive repairs can be achieved by using modern lime-based mortars. Lithomex is a state-of-the-art brick and stone resurfacing and repair material specifically designed to restore the profile, surface finish, texture, and color of the original masonry unit. This workshop introduces participants to Lithomex and the basic techniques to achieve convincing and durable surface repairs for vintage masonry. The lecture, demonstrations, and hands-on exercises review the deterioration phenomenon, selecting repair methods and materials, and procedures to work with Lithomex. Under the guidance of experienced masons from, students will also have the opportunity to shape Lithomex and practice creative blending, tooling techniques, and fashioning details to simulate existing masonry. The additional knowledge and skills may enable attendees to cultivate a competitive edge in the growing restoration field. Prior masonry experience is helpful but not required.

  • Understand the science behind breathable natural hydraulic lime.

  • Be able to create color shading, introduce veining and mottling, and tool through color banding to achieve convincing effects using Lithomex.

    I enjoyed the workshop. The instructors were frank and open with their products and experience. This is quite refreshing in a market where so many things are coveted trade secrets. I would like to return as soon as my schedule allows.
