Dundean Studios is PCI compliant!


Faux on Walls I & II are designed for homeowners who wish to achieve professional results with their own projects.

The Faux Design series of classes are designed for people who wish to get into the business of faux finishing or for those who already are and want to upgrade their techniques.

Other classes are set up as Professional and Advanced. Advanced means advanced and without taking the first class or without considerable experiance, you will not be allowed to take an advanced class. This is to be fair to the other students. Please read the class descriptions to be sure.

beginner to intermediate faux finish classes

We reserve the right to close classes if a minimum number of sign-ups are not reached 2 weeks before class.

Decorative painting, wall glazing, venetian plaster and faux finish instruction are offered at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Our studio is one of the premier training schools in the North Eastern U.S. for faux finish instruction and venetian plaster classes. Our philosophy is hands-on instruction, not just demonstration. Finishes are taught in stages where the student masters or at least has a good understanding of the final result before continuing.

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 faux painting technique where the tool mark is left undisguised on a surface. Wall glazing is texturing a transluscent, colored glaze with a tool and then removing any sign of the tool or hand that applied it. We make a distinction between the two in our classes. 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. We are one of the few studios that insist a person must be qualified to take advanced classes before they are allowed to sign up for them.
