Faux finishing
has been used for millennial, from cave painting to Ancient Egypt, but what we generally think of as faux finishing in
decorative arts began with Plaster and Stucco Finishes in Mesopotamia over 5000 years Ago examples of faux painting.
Faux became hugely popular in Classical times in the forms of faux Marble, faux Wood, and Tromp O'neill Murals. Artists
would apprentice for 10 years or more with a master faux painter before working on their own. Great recognition was
rewarded to artist who could actually trick viewers into believing their work was the real thing. Faux painting has
continued to be popular throughout the ages, but experienced major resurgences in the neoclassical revival of the
nineteenth century and the Art Deco styles of the 1920s. Throughout the recent history of decorative painting, faux
finishing has been mainly used in commercial and public spaces.In the late 1980s and early 1990s faux finishing saw
another major revival, as wallpaper began to fall out of fashion. At this point, faux painting started to become extremely
popular in home environments, with high end homes leading the trends. While it can be quite expensive to hire a
professional faux finisher, many faux painting methods are simple enough for a beginning home owner to create with a
little instruction. People are also attracted to the simplicity of changing a faux finish, as it can be easily painted over
compared with the hassle of removing wallpaper.
