What is Faux Finish Painting?

Often times, my clients will ask me what Faux Finishing is and how is it different from other effect painting techniques such as Venetian Plaster and Tromp L’oeil. As a professional muralist for over 20 years, I love the inspiration that can be gained from a faux finish design.

Faux painting literally means “fake painting” and it originates as a technique for painting surfaces, including walls, ceilings, trim, floors, countertops and even furniture, to look like another source of texture or design.

Marble design was the popular trend that set the stage for Faux Finishing’s success and growth in popularity.

Artists, designers and home owners began to distress furniture with an antique and crackled style in order to give an aged look to furniture.
