Popular Faux Painting Terms

Faux painting techniques are a great way to improve the decorative aspects of a room and create a unique feel in your home. The following are some common faux paining terms to be familiar with.

  • Acrylic Paint – Acrylic paint is a type of paint that contains pigment which is suspended in an acrylic polymer. They are often referred to as latex paints, although no latex is used to make them. Acrylic paint can be watered down or thickened using additives. When certain decorating techniques are applied, acrylic paints can be used to create texture.
  • Faux Wood Finish – Furniture and walls are sometimes decorated with a faux wood finish. This can be completed by hand painting a wood grain design onto something or purchasing a veneer that has been prepared with a faux wood finish. Using a veneer is a popular option for kitchen and bathroom cabinets.
  • Faux Mable – Faux marble surfaces have been painted and finished to look like polished marble. This is often done in the interior of buildings when using real marble would be too expensive. A decorator will use marble colors and painting techniques that create the appearance of veining and shine.
  • Distressing – Distressing a piece of furniture or an interior or exterior wall makes it look older and weathered. Distressing is done to create a rustic or antique look. There are many decorating tricks to making things look older. Paints can be used to create a crackled effect or brushes can be used to fake aging.
  • Stenciling – Stenciling is used to create patterns or borders to decorate a house. Stencils are often used to create patterns that resemble retro wallpaper or custom designs. Using stenciling allows a decorator to chose colors and patterns that will fit the decorating scheme and be carried throughout the room.

    Faux finish painting is a great decorating technique because it gives the illusion of texture where there is none. Utilizing rags, sponges, rollers, and even combs, you can create the look of marble, crackle, and spatter on any wall in the house. It even works on ceilings. This decor technique is often used on murals, but is also useful for plain old living room and kitchen walls. Want brick work in your kitchen but can't afford costly bricks? Paint them on! Want a cloud scene on your baby's nursery wall? You can do that too. From glaze to stone to sand, give the illusion of texture by employing the art of faux finish painting. If you don't think you can do it yourself or don't have the time, hire a professional to do it for you! The color and style choices are limitless. All you need is a bit of creativity, paint, and some simple tools. Paint can create the look of metal, suede, stripes, and plaster when applied in the proper manner. For example, sponging is a popular technique that offers more dimension to a wall than a standard coat of paint. You can even match your faux painting colors to your furniture to incorporate all elements of the room. Quality drywall is a good base for your faux painting project. Many online decorating sites offer helpful guides on how to chose colors, prep the surface, and perform various faux painting techniques like color washing. Whether you are planning an interior or exterior painting project, there are steps that should be followed in order to achieve the best possible outcome. Check out design and décor books at your local library to get some additional ideas.
