Frequently Asked Questions
What is faux finishing?
The term "faux finishing" has grown to encompass a wide variety of decorative and artistic painted finishes. In its simplest and earlier form, faux finish implies any form of painting that mimics natural materials such as: wood, marble, stone, leather, animal skin, etc. As well as man-made materials such as cloth, brick and plaster. As many of these materials are both cumbersome and expensive to use for decorative purposes, faux finishing has become very popular and cost effective.
