The terms Faux Painting and Faux Finishing are one in the same and both pertain to the decorative arts most widely recognized
as in the French and Italian styles.
However there are thousands of others styles that have been mastered all over the world.
The artform was developed to replicate nature in many ways but also to represent manmade materials in areas where it is to difficult and/or cost effective to use the actual source such as precious stones, marbles, exotic woods and even plant life that would be structurally impossible to use and meet the support and/or building code requirements of the mammoth architectures that have been constructed throughout history.
The use of faux finishing and decorative art techniques goes back a millenia.
In many ways Faux Finishing is applied to replicate rare semi-precious stones, marble and also animal hides of protected/endangered wildlife.
