Services : Faux Finishes
In addition to the process of painting interiors
with solid colors I also provide a service of advanced painting
techniques commonly known as faux finishing.
It can be used anytime when you want to add
creativity and self-expression to your decorating project. With
the right tools and extensive practice I master these effects
and use my imagination to expand and adapt them to make my own
I can combine finishes into one design to
add new life to a classic technique. Samples of that work can
be found under Faux Finish section of the portfolio.
There are two categories within decorative
painting that are worth mention: textured surfaces and pattern.
Texture will affect the way a color is seen because material
absorbs and reflects light. Venetian plaster and stucco are the
best examples of this.
Pattern in the other hand, can help add movement
to a scheme and often is used to change impression of the space
dimensions in height or length. Also, this is a practical choice
to hide marks on high use surfaces.
