note from instructor Brian Bullard: "It's not always the matter of a faux
finish, but where to put it. Lack of good "faux finishing design" is the
most common error we see in the field today. Hundreds of students of my
"Fourday Faux Finishing & Business Course" have been so thrilled with
this exercise that we have decided to offer it as a class. No business,
no pricing, strictly faux design, no prerequisites.
You will go through a total of six
exercises, painting 12 techniques in everything imaginable. Individuality
is encouraged, as no two areas or faux designs are ever alike.
Uses: Faux design and historic
period faux styling knowledge. Integrating proper color and faux painting
theory into faux design and planning. For use with walls, ceilings, mantles,
furniture, doors, columns, etc.
/ Skill Level: None. Every learning level, from
homeowners, hobbyists, college students, painting contractors, to future
decorative artists and existing faux businesses.
