“Faux finishes” are painting techniques used to fake the viewer into believing that what they are seeing could be marble, granite, gemstones, leather gold or other metals, be they antiques or not.  Paint finishes have historically been found on walls, furniture and accessories where the “real McCoy” is not affordable, or simply not available.  In other words, paint is a great material substitution for the real thing, given the degree of skill level of the artist.  Just as one might substitute a CZ for a diamond in a piece of jewelry, the illusion is that CZ looks like a diamond, but much more affordable than a real one.

You are invited to learn and practice the magic of creating look-alikes for walls, accessories and furniture for yourself  and your business.  Learn about finishes that are appropriate for different objects, which materials and tools to use, and what techniques to employ to achieve high-quality fine finishes.

Products and tools will be provided.  Expect handouts with materials and tools list, resources and instructions and substitutions for those too!  Let’s get creative and do some hands-on practicing to execute some marble finishes, some gemstone finishes and some faux antiquing.

Tuition: $150; Materials $20
