Faux Finisher, Fall 2001

ProFaux Transforms Magazine's Headquarters

The St. Louis headquarters building of the Paint & Decorating Retailers Association, publisher of The Faux Finisher,
is receiving a major facelift, courtesy of ProFaux Workshops of Akron, Ohio. The principals of the company, Greg Frohnapfel and John Catalanotto, are completing the work, which includes some of the latest European finishes. In the first phase of the project, they were assisted by two other faux artists: Lori Wilson of Golden Artist Colors and Joe Eby of Eby Faux and Decorative Arts Studio in Omaha, Nebraska. There were various elements of the initial project, including:
• The entranceway, featuring textured pitted bronze metal on the ceiling, with 23 carat gold leaf on the rims and faux brick.
• The receptionist area, featuring venetian plaster and two corporate logos. The PDRA logo was done in 23 carat gold leaf and the "R" in blue lapis, while the logo of the tenant, Global Solutions, was done in silver leaf.
• The waiting area and front hallway both featured textured finishes. The waiting area was done in Tuscan Stone, while the hallway features a plaster finish using Sandstone. The ProFaux team also is doing work in other parts of the building, including the education/meeting room which is being completed in wood graining with trompe l'oeil architectural details, and various effects. Look for photos in upcoming issues.
