COLUMN PAINTING
Marbling Faux Finish & Trompe L'oeil Paintings

Column painting is the best rendition to enhance the design and beauty of columns. The manipulation of appearance in painting faux finish marbles and trompe l'oeil effect is to fit and hanmonized the interior decoration.

The art of rendering marble with paint and glaze is a time honered craft dating back before the Renaissance period. The ability to recreate the look of various polished marbles today is indispensible to home owners and decorators in search of it's regal and sophisticated look.

Besides the fact that many marbles are no longer available, the weight of actual marble as well as it's cost sometimes makes it prohibitive as a viable option in buildings. Faux marble finishes can, when applied by an experienced artist, recreate the look of Alabaster, Cipollino, Travertine, Yellow Sienna, Limestone or any number of authentic marbles. Aesthetically it can be applied to Marble Columns, Marble Panels, Arches, Mantels, Fireplace Surrounds. In short..anywhere your imagination allows.

About:
Faux Finish Painting

Faux painting or Faux finishing are terms used to describe a wide range of decorative painting techniques. The naming comes from the French word faux, meaning false, as these techniques started as a form of replicating materials such as marble and wood with paint, but has subsequently come to encompass many other decorative finishes for walls and furniture.


History:

Faux finishing has been used for millennia, from cave painting to Ancient Egypt, but what we generally think of as faux finishing in decorative arts began with Plaster and Stucco Finishes in Mesopotamia over 5000 years ago.
