Drywall Worker Creates Stunning 3D Art Using Only Joint Compound

Bernie Mitchell is not just another drywall contractor. Based in Ontario, Canada, he uses his knowledge to sculpt intricate 3D murals. Employing joint compound, he creates stunning nature-themed sculptures on drywall, featuring birds, horses, wolves and dogs.

Mitchell began experimenting with drywall in the early 1990s. He was playing with raised surfaces and light. Then, he started using wheat and barley stalks to make impressions. Today, his pieces have evolved into everlasting works of art that demonstrate his extraordinary creativity. If you want to learn how to do it, be sure to follow Mitchell on Facebook, he is planning to create tutorials soon!

How does he keep the results from cracking when they dry? I've worked with drywall glop and anything thicker than 1/8 inch cracks and has to be filled.

From my experience I've noticed that the parts with a lot more water in them are more prone to cracking, although i dont actually have that much experience with it. I've used 1 inch thick, almost dry globs and those dried fine
