Faux Finishes & Restoration Techniques for Historic Homes

Faux Plaster Projects    

We prefer using water-based treatments to achieve the look of aged plaster over drywall, which is shown in this project, but we also use Venetian plaster and joint compound-based techniques for a thicker aged plaster finish. Our first project uses a sandstone colored glaze as opposed to the grey/raw umber blend for plaster. Scroll down for more traditional faux plaster looks.
