For some of our clients, a simply painted wall or wallpaper does not express what they are trying to achieve in their home. Whether your desire is to re-create a Tuscan or Moroccan Villa; the rustic walls of a Mexican Hacienda; the warmth of the walls in traditional Japanese architecture, or the walls that you marveled at in the palaces of Venice, the artists at Terry Hunt Painting and Decorating can help you achieve your vision.
For over 20 years, Terry Hunt Painting & Decorating has provided custom faux finishes for homeowners and designers throughout the Desert. Faux finishing is a term used to describe a wide range of decorative painting techniques. Faux (pronounced "foe") is a French word meaning false. The intent in faux finishing or faux painting is to either replicate natural materials such as leather, stone, marble or wood with paint and/or glazes, or to create a decorative "aged" effect for walls, woodwork and metal . The materials used to achieve these effects are paints, glazes, plasters, chemicals and other mediums used either separately or in combination.
Faux finishing is one of the fastest growing trends in decoration. The effects that can be created provide a warmth and elegance that cannot be matched by traditional paint or wallcoverings.
Faux Painting describes a technique by which natural materials such as stone, marble or wood are replicated by the use of paint & transparent mediums (glazes). Learn more about our Faux Painting services.
