A faux finish is a specialized skill set that allows a painter to recreate the look and feel of a different surface.

This method takes patience and a solid amount of artistry to pull it off, but can have amazing results for your home. Dallas Paints prides itself on our skilled faux finishing methods.

There are numerous forms of faux painting – perhaps an endless amount. Any surface or technique can theoretically be replicated by a painter skilled enough. Here are some of the more popular faux finishes on walls.
This is popular to give a room a hard, sleek and modern look. White, grays and blacks are blended together to create the appearance of a smooth concrete surface.
The look of rich and aged stucco or leather-style surfaces can be remade using a method called rag rolling. The glazes and paints are applied via a rag in unique strokes.
Natural marble is an incredibly beautiful surface and has been used in construction since the time of the ancients. Using multiple layers of glaze and subtle artistry we can create the illusion of a marble surface. Fireplaces, tables and walls are popular targets for this method.

Pro Tips for Faux Painting
Make sure you’re stocked up on supplies
If you’re looking to make faux painting a DIY project for yourself, getting the right supplies should be first. For the essentials, you’ll want a sponge roller, rags or whatever tool you’re using for texture, paintbrushes or rollers to apply the paint, and enough paint to get the job done. Make sure you measure any walls you’d like to paint and note their width, length, and height so you will have an idea of how much paint to purchase.
Try something simple for your first project
If you’ve never done a DIY faux painting project before, then start off with something easy. You could give a few different ideas a try, such as color-washing, sponge rolling, or rag rolling. Each of these is simple projects that you can try for yourself without spending too much money, and don’t take much time to complete.
Common Questions About Faux Painting
At Dallas Paints, we get a lot of questions about faux painting finishes. To help you out, we have answered the most common here to the best of our ability. If you have any questions please contact us or book an appointment today!
Is faux painting expensive?
Since faux painting can encompass so many possibilities there is no straightforward answer.
The amount of surface you will want to paint and the method which will be employed are two big factors. Some simple methods may only cost you a few dollars for a square foot, other methods can be triple that.
All of the faux painting methods are relatively inexpensive when compared to other remodeling or resurfacing treatments.
What is faux glaze used for?
The faux glaze is a translucent layer that is painted on to protect the paint and to add various textures. With glaze, an artist can formulate a plethora of rich and dynamic shapes and textures. It really is quite amazing when you look at some “before and after” examples of what can be accomplished with it.
How do you faux paint a wall?
Like with the question on price, this depends on the wall and the desired look. At Dallas Paints, we approach every job from the perspective that this will be something you will want to look at for years to come, and perfection goes hand in hand with that expectation.
We draw upon our years of experience to ensure that your job is done quickly and efficiently and done right.
We will clear out the room, ensure all exposed surfaces are protected and will get to work. Soon we will finish up and the room will look cleaner than when we began -not to mention it will have an amazing new surface.
How are faux finishes created?
You probably understand that each job is unique by this point. We can say that each faux finish is made using an advanced painting treatment to emulate a stylized texture. Then a glaze is applied to seal, protect and further emphasize the texture. Many artists have their own proprietary methods for creating certain accents or flourishes.
