Faux Painting Terms
Faux painting and faux finishing are wonderful and inexpensive alternatives to the more expensive forms of wall and furniture embellishment. Materials such as marble and wood can be replicated using various painting techniques. Here are a few terms to remember if you are planning to have your home or furniture faux painted or faux finished:

Trompe L'oeil: Translates to "trick the eye." It is a technique that uses paint to create realistic three dimensional detailing on flat surfaces.

Marbleizing: The use of plaster or glazing on walls and furniture to make the surface appear to be real marble.

Graining: A painting technique used to make surfaces look like expensive wood grain.

Color Wash: A technique wherein paint is combined with a glaze in order to produce a free-flowing and subtle layer of color.

Venetian Plaster: A plastering finish that involves taking a smooth and thin layer of plaster and manipulating it with a spatula in order to create the illusion of depth and texture.

Mural: A painting or any artwork, typically very large in scale, that is applied directly to a wall. Often this was done to create the illusion of space, depth and height, thereby causing the viewer to believe that the painted surface was actually an extension of the given space. Murals are also referred to as frescoes.

Rag Painting: A faux paint technique that uses a glaze and paint solution and bunched up rags in order to create texture on a surface. This is often used to replicate highly textured fabric wall coverings.

The Internet is a great resource for getting décor ideas on faux finish painting. So head to your local home improvement store, where sales associates in the paint department can guide you to the best tools and colors for your project. Some such stores even offer classes on various techniques like using a sponge, comb, rag, or roller to provide added texture to interior or exterior walls.

One fun faux finish, painting style to try is color washing. This finish provides a worn, weathered look that works great with classical and even modern styles. Since it has a subtle texture finish, it's ideal for use on walls that have some imperfections. Home improvement or painting professionals can help you with this style and many others as well.

Services offered by paint stores include free samples, online color application tools, and special discounts. The online options in particular give customers even more choices when it comes to faux painting, as online tools take the guesswork out of choosing colors.

Consultants can help consumers with the right finishing techniques including spatter, glaze, stripes, crackle and more. You can create the illusion of marble, stone, sand, clouds, or metal by using various tools. Paint supplies stores offer tools, stains, paint, and other materials for sale. Professionals in this business should have a broad knowledge of the different kinds of paints and décor techniques. Well-informed employees can offer consumers a range of options when it comes to faux painting their ceilings and walls. It's also easy to incorporate other design elements such as light fixtures and decorative furniture into the entire project.

Painting professionals often draw on their expertise in design to provide decorative assistance to consumers. Texture can easily be created to give off the look of suede, brick, cracked plaster, or marble.
