Decorative Paint Effects

MMaking changes to a colour scheme or materials used in decorating your home can make an enormous difference. Faux finishes have always been immensely desirable, from the gilded plaster statues of ancient Rome to the apparently marble pillars of the Blue Room in Buckingham Palace.

Working with a host of materials and using a wide variety of tools including mottling and blending brushes, quills and graining combs as well as floggers and natural sponge, we are able to achieve the appearance of many sumptuous stones from luxurious Breccia marble, warm sandstone and the robust El Capitan granite.

Bespoke finishes require skill and experience. Prior to the application of the many tints and glazes required to create distressed or antique effects as well as the fine artwork that we are known for, there is an intense period of cleaning and preparation.
