Faux Painting Finish - Plaster

This site requires that javascript be enabled to view all of our content.

    Aged plaster is a faux painting technique used to create an Italian, "Old World", look to your decor. This faux painting effect can be accomplished on water based painted walls (paint must have some degree of sheen such as: eggshell, satin) or on lime washed walls. One or several scumble glazes (warm colors like:burnt umber, burnt sienna, raw sienna, and yellow ochre) are applied to create areas of light and dark. Other techniques like stippling, color washing, color rubbing, frottage, a faded mural, or faux exposed brick add to the illusion. Plaster can be used to accent a wall or texturize an entire room. Create that "Old World" look in your wineroom with a plaster reveal or maybe a textural plaster covered with antiqung glazes. Artist, muralist, Emily Smith displays faux painting, fine art, decorative finishing, murals, trompe l'oeil, and plaster faux painting work.
