Our Process

1. Consultation and Design Selection

Understanding the client’s preferences, design vision, and the ambiance they aim to achieve is crucial. This includes discussing various faux finish options and choosing the one that best resonates with the client’s aesthetic goals.

2. Surface Preparation

The first tangible step in the faux painting process is surface preparation. This phase involves ensuring the designated surface is properly prepped, which includes thorough cleaning, smoothening, and appropriate priming. Adequate surface preparation is essential to achieve the desired faux finish effectively.

3. Base Coat Application

A base coat of paint matching the intended finish is applied after surface preparation. This base coat serves as the foundation for the subsequent layers of the faux finish. It provides the initial tone and texture necessary to build upon.

4. Layering and Technique Application

The heart of the faux painting process lies in layering multiple coats using specialized techniques aligned with the chosen faux finish. Techniques like sponging, glazing, dragging, and more are used. These techniques are strategically applied to create the desired texture, depth, and visual effect.

5. Color Layering and Blending:

Layering different colors is crucial to achieve depth and complexity in the faux finish. Skilled artisans blend these colors seamlessly to create a natural, realistic appearance or the intended artistic effect. This stage is where the true artistry of faux painting comes to life.

6. Detailing and Accents

The next step is adding intricate details and accents with specific tools or brushes. These details play a vital role in enhancing the overall texture and design of the faux finish. They contribute to the authenticity and character of the outcome.

7. Drying and Curing

Allowing the paint to dry thoroughly between layers and after completing the faux finish is essential for a durable, long-lasting result. Proper drying and curing ensure the finish maintains its integrity and aesthetic appeal over time.

8. Protective Coating (Optional)

A clear protective coat is sometimes applied to seal the faux finish, enhancing its longevity and durability. This step is optional but can significantly contribute to the finish’s durability and resistance to wear and tear.

9. Inspection and Client Approval

Upon completing the faux finish, a comprehensive inspection is carried out to ensure it meets the client’s expectations and design requirements. Custom Painting, Inc. values client satisfaction, and any necessary adjustments or enhancements are made to ensure the final result aligns perfectly with the client’s vision.

10. Project Completion and Cleanup

The final stages of the project involve completing the workspace and leaving it clean and tidy. Additionally, Custom Painting, Inc. provides the client with care and maintenance instructions for the faux finish so they can preserve its beauty and charm for years.
