Faux finish painting and decorative painting services | Painting

Are you looking for a way to add beauty and sophistication to your home? Fine art painting can do that for you. Art painting is a type of decorative painting that includes techniques such as stencils, patterns, and stripes.

Faux surfaces make a great alternative to wallpaper: you can have artistic and original walls (without being limited to available designs), with the benefit of a smooth, seamless surface and the ability to simply paint over the wall if you want to change it up . It can also give you the option to mimick an expensive material like marble at a fraction of the cost.

Various colors are used in art and decorative painting to create the look you want. Most art painting techniques combine a flat base color with a matching glaze, which creates a different effect depending on what you use to apply it. Depending on the end effect, different tools such as brushes, rags, sponges and rollers are used.
