Faux finish school and workshop for beginners and aspiring professionals

A faux finish or faux painting is a painted imitation of something that occurs naturally. This is not sponging, ragging, smooshing, bagging or any other so-called faux painting technique where the tool mark is left undisguised on a surface. Broken color wall glazing is texturing a transluscent, colored wall glaze with a tool. We make a distinction between the two in our classes. The intermediate classes are where you start to learn the art of real faux finishing. This generally requires developing a skill rather than just a technique and requires practise.
