Faux Finishes & Restoration Techniques for Historic Homes

Concrete Staining, Stencilling, and Faux Finishes    

Concrete stains and formulations such as Skimstone are their own mediums for faux finishes. Inexpensive concrete statuary, such as you might get at a small town market, can be stained and then antiqued for a much more exciting look. Skimstone can be blended and applied much link Venetian plaster finish. It is unusual because, as you blend and spread the color, you release pigmentation and can create attractive patterns with your trowel. View the photos of our latest Skimstone project.
