Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thankfully, the days of all-white walls and monochromatic furnishings are over; the new trend in home design is all about color, depth, and texture. Faux finishes deliver these qualities and more: they also add depth, drama, and a lifetime of beauty to your home. By using sponges, rags, feathers, paper, and burlap as well as brushes and rollers on your walls and ceilings, you can simulate the appearance of bamboo cloth, antique moldings, even formal wallpaper, while energizing your interiors. From color selection and preparation to paint mixing, application, and cleanup, the author walks you through every step of the rolling, stippling, color layering, and other remarkably simple--and surprisingly fun--decorative painting techniques that imbue your rooms with New Age elegance or Old World charm. Whether you copy these finishes or develop your own using your newfound knowledge, you'll be thrilled with the real results you get from faux finishes.

Synopsis:

“Twelve brand-spanking-new techniques and a bunch of old favorites. A definite plus are extensive directions, not only for each technique but also for questions about color, preparation, and equipment. Good close-up color photographs make this instructional text even more valuable. Work checklist, glossary, and metric equivalents appended.”—Booklist. “Good for public libraries.”—Library Journal.
