Decorative Painting

If you want a unique painting option for your home, decorative painting or faux painting may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Faux painting or faux finishing are terms for a wide range of decorative painting techniques. The terms are based on the French word “faux”, meaning false, because these techniques originated as methods of replicating materials such as marble and wood with paint. Now decorative painting includes many other types of decorative finishes.

A large number of Venetian and other decorative plasters, old world finishes, or simple glazing techniques can be used. Flying Colours Ottawa painting offers a wide variety of beautiful faux finishes for your decorating needs.
