What is Faux Painting?

Faux painting can give your area the appearance of one type of material (like wood or marble) while being something entirely different. It can create a very unique feel to your space that can't be achieved through regular painting methods. Here are a few popular techniques that you may see in a sophisticated, luxury home.

Venetian Plaster

Artisans of yesteryear used a specific technique to create an intricate look, but it was also time-consuming. Now, this technique is achieved through an easy to apply plaster that creates a stucco or polished marble finish.

Artisan Finish

This also resembles marble, and can even change hues and shades through the different light that is cast on it. Specific painting techniques and materials are used to create the stunning look in your home.

Metallic Paint & Plaster

While in years past, using a metallic finish in your paint was actually quite dangerous, you can easily have a metallic look on your walls with the use of metallic paint or plaster. Both create an astonishingly beautiful style that will look beautiful in your home.

Manda Mudd

In the last fifty years or so, the drywall industry changed, and the application became less handcrafted and more streamlined. If you desire a wall that has the texture of older homes, you can have this created with new practices and new materials.

Sandstone Finish

The sandy texture in this paint creates a stunning texture - even more breathtaking than plain drywall. This can be one of the fastest ways to update your space and create a look of sophistication and style.

Brushed Suede

Do you want a style that is truly elegant? Brushed suede combines texture and color to create a style that can't be compared to any other. Special tools and techniques are used to create this look - and it is truly phenomenal.

Faux Paint, Faux Real

While faux painting was created to mimic a certain style, color, pattern, or material - there is nothing fake about it. The way it improves a space through light distribution and color changing appeal is incredible. The fastest way to improve your space is through painting your walls, but the fastest way to create your space is through faux painting.
