Canadian drywall contractor Bernie Mitchell has turned his trade into an awesome art form. He uses wet joint compound (also known as drywall compound or mud) to sculpt beautiful reliefs of animals and nature scenes on walls, above fireplaces, and as decorative features on other prominent surfaces inside homes and cottages. Mitchell is particularly fond of using wild birds as his primary subjects, especially blue heron, osprey and loons. He’s also partial to incorporating wolves, dogs, and horses into his scenes.
