Faux painting or faux finishing are terms used to describe decorative paint finishes that replicate the appearance of materials such as marble, wood or stone.
We can customize any room to reflect your lifestyle and design themes.
Types of finishes:
•Marbleizing or faux marbling is used to make walls and furniture look like real marble • Graining, wood graining, or faux bois (French for "fake wood") is often used to imitate wood varieties. •Trompe l'oeil, "trick the eye" in French, uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. This technique is often used in murals and to create architectural details. •Color wash is a free-form finish that creates subtle variations of color using multiple hues of glaze blended together. •Strie, from the French word meaning "stripe" or "streak", is a glazing technique that creates soft thin streaks of color and texture. •Distressing in the decorative arts is the activity of making a piece of furniture or object appear aged and older.
