Faux Painting Ideas

The possibilities of faux painting are very extensive because of all the different techniques and materials that are available. Each technique allows for beautiful patterns, textures and colors to be created. Some faux painting techniques are:

  • Strié

    • This glaze technique is created by dragging a brush down in one motion from top to bottom. In order to create a beautiful even pattern, the glaze must be applied evenly and the brush must be pressed firmly to the surface. The process can be repeated with different tones to add more  depth and character. To mimic a linen pattern we can do a cross-strié. This is created by doing the first layer horizontally and the second layer vertically. Each layer has to fully dry before adding more layers.

  • Stencils

    • Stencils are a great alternative to wallpapers because they provide a seamless finish and colors can be customized to best fit the look our clients want. To add more character to a stencil finish, a stippled (or ragged) glaze layer can be applied first.

  • Stippled

    • A stippled finish is created by applying the glaze evenly and tapping the surface with stipple brush. For largest surfaces a larger stipple brush is recommended. A stipple finish will add a beautiful subtle contrast to any surface.
