In addition to murals and fireplaces, I have done a variety of faux wall finishes and bold geometric designs. The most common faux finish is one that gives the space a feeling of age or richness, but as the word "faux" is simply French for false or fake, virtually anything under the sun can be "fauxed." Finishes may be done in acrylic or oil based paints, for a few I even used wood stain (and a respirator!).

An early job of mine, this finish took tube after tube of 5 different oil paint paints. Each day for nearly three weeks I would come in and spend the first 30 minutes creating the paint mixes I would use that day. Then square inch by square inch, sponge and cheese cloth in hand, I would apply my colors, blending and sculpting the glaze in this two story entry hall.
