Faux Finishes

Faux painting or faux finishing are terms used to describe decorative painting techniques that replicate the appearance of expensive architectural finishes such as marble, wood or stone. Commonly used in historic buildings to decorate surfaces of walls, ceilings, and ornament, these painted finishes contributed to rich, lavish, or dignified atmospheres at a lower cost.

Today, very few craftsmen can create realistic replicas of true architectural materials. EverGreene artists and artisans are experienced in creating a wide range of high quality faux finishes, including marble veining in various patterns and colors, and wood graining to replicate multiple species and cuts.
