Faux painting provides a way to create artificial surfaces such as wood, stone and marble at a fraction of the cost of purchasing the real materials.
These techniques can be used on cabinets, columns, doors, walls and ceilings. The result of these faux designs can often times have a more interesting appearance
than the authentic materials. Below you will find a list of some of our more commonly requested techniques, however keep in mind that we are a ※customized§ paint
company and can provide virtually any type of faux you have in mind. We always provide samples before a work is started so that you can be comfortable about the
choices you are making.
Wood Graining 每 This is a faux technique that is excellent for updating kitchen cabinets at a fraction of the cost of replacing them. This technique is also great for refinishing doors or making a metal door appear to be made of wood.
Venetian Plastering 每 Venetian Plastering is our favorite finish to produce because it offers such a beautiful dynamic to any room. You can use it as a focal point on just one wall or you can do a complete room. It is a terrific way to hide wall defects while also delivering an updated artistic touch. The texture and colors can be customized to produce many different results.
Marbling 每 is a faux finish that offers an alternative solution to costly, genuine marble. This is a more advanced faux finish that requires a gifted artist. It is most commonly used to turn wood columns into marble. The end result provides a spectacular appearance.
Color Washing 每 This technique is similar to Venetian Plastering minus the texture. It allows for blending of colors in such a way that they deliver an appealing dynamic to any wall.
Ragging 每 A paint glaze is applied and manipulated by a rag, newspaper, paper or plastic bag. This is most commonly done in layers.
Torn Paper 每 This technique can be done in different manners but the most luxurious involves multiple layers of small ※torn§ pieces of paper applied to the wall. The end result is a truly unique effect. It is definitely an eye catching conversation piece for anyone who observes it. Another technique used is to tear larger pieces of painted paper and apply then to the wall to create a stone like appearance.
