Decorative Finishes

As a professional painter and decorator you may be required to apply decorative paint finishes to a range of different material surfaces.

This may involve planning and preparation for the work; preparation of the application area; application of mirror paint finishes, broken colour effects and lines by brush; and completion of clean-up activities.

Modern faux finishes

These paint finishes are designed to provide specialized decorative effect variously to simulate stoneware, textiles and even metals. Their prime role is aesthetic and their advantages and limitations vary significantly from product to product and careful consideration is required in their selection. Application of these products may require specialised techniques and skills. Coatings to simulate traditional finishes cover a wide range of formulations to provide the effect of traditional finishes such as limewash, marbling, distempers and sandstone.
