More ‘Old World’ Walls

I have added a couple of areas to a job I worked on previously. This job is a work in progress and done for one of my favorite customers! – I have been very fortunate to have the most amazing clients in my career, so actually ALL my customers are my favorite 🙂

The rustic Mediterranean finish was achieved by heavily layering a faux plaster mix on the walls, then washing color on it to simulate aged stucco. At a later date, I will be painting grape vines above the arches and trail them down the sides. I can’t wait to see this space when it’s completed!

Until next time, have an awesome day.

Mural Surrounded with Faux Weathered Plaster

This entryway went from ordinary painted walls to a

stunning masterpiece with an Old World feel!

The hand of God reaching out to Adam’s – (from Michelangelo’s ‘Creation of Adam’) is the centerpiece of the stairway wall. Surrounding it is a faux weathered Venetian style plaster. It was troweled on a bit more heavily than usual so we could see the depth of the plaster. 

A few days and many processes and applications later the area is no longer a generic entryway! The results were quite spectacular – extending around the corners, up over a doorway, then down the other side – framing out the entrance into the living area.  Unfortunately these photos do not show the depth of character and actual texture of the plaster. The overall appearance here is muted.

This room is definitely something that needs to be seen and experienced in person.

If you look closely you will see the blue undertones that show through slightly around the outside of the mural area. I also added some cracks in the plaster in various places. These are sculpted into the plaster and painted.

More photos to come ~ In the meantime
