About Faux Finishing

Faux finishing is the reproduction of the look of natural materials such as marble, wood, granite, and leather using various painting techniques. Venetian plaster is considered by some Masters to be a faux finish as it is a process that was meant to replicate marble. Every faux finish is a build-up of applications that require significant time as well as technical expertise and artistic skill.

Applying a faux finish enhances architectural accents where the real element may be cost prohibitive, unavailable or impractical. Wood graining with “trompe l’oeil” paneling can transform walls and doors into an 18th century library. Marbleized columns offer a timeless accent of solidity. Architects and designers rely on faux finishing to recreate these beautiful and timeless design elements.

Faux Finishing Pricing

Pricing varies greatly on the intricacy of the marble or wood grain placement. For example, a pair of columns can start at $1000 depending on the marble you choose and the condition of the column. A sample board can be included in the cost of the contract for your preapproval. For accurate pricing, contact us for a proposal appointment.
