Faux Finishes - Marble and Alabaster

  Return to Faux Finishes Main Page and Slideshow


These classical faux applications are created to simulate the real material. The viewer often can't tell if a piece is real or painted. Marble, Alabaster, and Stone faux finishes are used on large and small scale elements, interior and exterior. Common uses are for columns, fireplaces, decorative plaster, and light fixtures.
