Faux Finishing

A Wide Range of Decorative Painting Techniques.

The name comes from the French word faux, meaning false, as these techniques started as a form of replicating materials such as marble and wood with paint, but has subsequently come to encompass many other decorative finishes for walls and furniture.

At Big Six Painting, we customize your walls to create an artistic appeal.

In today’s faux finishing, there are three major materials/processes used.

Glaze work involves using a translucent mixture of paint and glaze applied with a brush, roller, rag, or sponge, and often mimics textures, but it is always smooth to the touch.

Plaster work can be done with tinted plasters, or washed over with earth pigments, and is generally applied with a trowel or spatula. The finished result can be either flat to the touch or textured.

Texture coating can be applied to sheetrock walls to resemble decorative surfaces. Texture is available in stone, metal, antique, and tough plaster finishes.
