Elephant Hide
Copper Patina
Elephant Hide
Fashioned after the thick and rugged texture of true elephant hide, this handsome and versatile finish is applied to ceilings, walls and even three dimensional surfaces.
 
Copper Patina
The accelerated blue-green oxidation of copper mimics the time-weathered surfaces of objects d'art. It is often used as an accent in room but is durable enough for exterior roofs and gutters.
     
Malachite
Crackle
Malachite
A carbonate of copper, this green to nearly black semiprecious stone is sought after for it's range of pattern and coloration. It has been used by ever craftsmen to make fine jewelry and to cover small precious objects with thin architecturally matched veneers.
 
Crackle
This broken color technique is nearly as old as paint itself. Learn how to control this "alligatoring" effect on paneled doors and large wall areas.
     
Wall Striping
Wall Striping
Stripes are still in vogue. Hand painted decorative stripes continues to be popular. Vertical stripes lend a certain formality any interior space, as well as adding visual height to a room. Painted stripes gives a warmer, handcrafted feel than stipes of perfectly machined wallcovering. The primary advantages of painted stripes is infinite color, texture and band width range.
 
Ostrich Hide
More often used in handbags, pocketbooks, wallets and shoes, learn to imitate this elegant leather. In the past, top designers may have specified actual ostrich leather hides to be installed instead of a more traditional wallcoverings.. Today the faux finisher can easily simulate patches of ostrich leather on walls since the largest patch would have to be less than 20 square feet.
     
Clouds
Mica Granito
Clouds
Skyscapes can easily account for half the area in landscape murals. It is good to know how to paint clouds on larger wall and ceiling areas with tradition brush methods rather than relying only on spray techniques. Learn how artists have imitated clouds over the centuries in their paintings and how different cloud patterns can affect your mood.
 
Mica Granito
Granito, from the Italian meaning “grained”. Granite is a common, coarse-grained, igneous rock prized for its exceptional hardness, ability to take a high polish and uniformity of color. The use of granite in important buildings suggests a sense of unyielding endurance and steadfastness. Faux possibilities include floor tiles, wall slabs, table tops, architectural details and accessories.
     
Drift Marble
 
Drift Marble
Drift marble is an elegant finish accomplished using Pro Faux Scumble glaze. It harmonizes well with other marbles and woods. Frequently the veins of color are interrupted and look more like dots of color in a path rather than one continuous line or vein. Subtle drifts of color may range from light gray and yellow ochre to various browns and black.
