Decorative Faux Finishes Promise Timeless Beauty for years to come.
Custom Finishes to include crackling, combing, color washing, sponging, strie, ragging, marbling,
and stripes, require perfect drywall work and three coats of paint in preparation. During this process the layers of paint build to create a durable even sheen that can withstand the hand painted techniques applied on the base coat surface. The base coat has to be "washable" to maintain a quality finish with equal properties.
Venetian Plaster, Sandwash, and Bellagio Faux products require attention to detail in drywall preparation
for uniformity in the finish as well. Professionally painted finishes are not applied to "hide the flaws" on walls.
They are designed and created to illuminate your living space by accentuating the walls.
This being said, flaws have a tendency to "stand out" more when emphasized by painted finishes and preparation is always the most important step in faux finishing regardless of the
products used to create them.
Typically two average size rooms can be faux finished within one week. The cost per room can be as low as $450.00 each when multiple rooms are painted. Ceiling and Trim painting at an additional charge are highly recommended when paint finishes are applied.
"Livingmurals" Faux Finish Samples are only produced when a monetary commitment to the work is made. The custom samples for each finish are based on your preferred products, color choices and finish techniques. They remain the property of "Livingmurals" and are added to the"Sample Gallery" when the project is completed. There is no additional charge for the samples nor the time involved in creating and presenting them for approval.
When you have already bought the paint to do your faux finish yourself and it didn't turn out quite the way you expected it to don't hesitate to call "Livingmurals". Often the process looks easier to
accomplish than it actually is.
