Faux Finishes & Restoration Techniques for Historic Homes

Aging and Antiquing Techniques    

Urban Revivals can help imitate the effects of time on paint, wood, plaster, plastic, and drywall. An antique finish adds a warm and inviting feel to your room's decor. These techniques are created with any number of materials, such as wax, rottenstone, and oil glazes, depending on the technique employed.

We can perform any of these techniques: aging of plaster using shellac with liming wax, crackling lacquers ideal for furniture, fly spotting for furniture and moldings, tinted varnishes, antiquing waxes, crackled and distressed painted finishes, turn drywall into faux aged plaster, Renaissance finishes using rottenstone and wax, pale color washes that mimic weathering.
