Specialty finishes that have a unique, handcrafted appearance that boasts incredible depth and dimension. The term Faux comes from the French meaning false. This technique involves many applications of translucent glaze to create a look that may replicate marble, leather, or wood. 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. No two applications will be the same because a handcrafted touch transforms these finishes into a personal expression of creativity. Techniques can range from decorative and natural to casually elegant and sophisticated depending on color choice and placement within your space.
