Faux Finishes & Restoration Techniques for Historic Homes

Stippled Faux Finishes    

Stippling is a lovely finish, though it is not a particularly popular one for homes with Victorian decors. Stippling is accomplished by casting a soft veil of color over your walls using a combination of short soft-bristled brushes. Color variation can be adjusted by the pressure applied and type of brush. We find stippling is very effective when mixed with decoupage, as the soft glaze makes the images appear to be "a part of the wall."
