Some of these terms and products used to describe painted wall finishes might be confusing to you. Faux Finishing or Faux Painting is a common term you will often hear to describe hand painted wall finishes and textures. A glaze is simply a transparent tintable medium designed to dry slowly in order to manipulate into different designs and patterns. By using different tools to manipulate the products, whether it be a glaze, plaster or other medium of choice, you can achieve an endless variety of patterns and textures to achieve the effect you’re looking for. Some tools often used consist of sponges, cotton rags, terri rags, burlap, paper, or a variety of brushes and combs. All of which, in one form or another, we have used to achieve lovely wall finishes for our clients.
