Creating a Faux Finish

Have you ever looked at a wall and just thought to yourself, "How boring!"? I often find myself doing that and feeling a little life could be added to your room with a faux paint treatment, or maybe even a hand paint border or spray of flowers in different places throughout the room. You can add just a little and make a big difference in any room of your home or office.

Faux painting is an inexpensive way to create interest on walls, glassware, and even furniture. It is a wonderful way to cover up flawed walls too. Remember, if you do a technique and find that you really do not like it, all you have to do is paint over it. It really is just that easy.

Faux actually means "fake". You can use several different techniques to create interesting designs. A combination of different techniques can mimic many different products such as stone, marble, and even granite.

Often there are different tools and products that can be used to create the same look. You may find yourself trying different products and tools that are out on the market today, in order to achieve the desired look you are going for. In this learning process you will determine what works best for you. The main thing is to not be afraid to try. It is just paint!

There really is not wrong way to do it. The main thing to remember is to keep trying until you get the look you are after. Just like with anything else in life, the more you practice the better you will get.
