Faux Finishes

Richard has been leading projects that involve faux finishes since 1989. Richard has worked on faux finishing walls behind art shows in the Chicago Museum of Modern Art, The Chicago Art Institute, The A,T &T corporate headquarters and many nice homes.  Our most recent project has been over 8700 square feet of American Clay plaster work for the Cloister on the Platte retreat center (a project headed up by Joe Ricketts) that will open this spring.  We've been working with Frank Bevins Painting.  We've been asked not to post photos of the project for now but the finish is an all natural troweled on clay.  The manufacturer has certified us as the official artisan applicators for Nebraska.  This is what they say about the product: "Our natural earth plaster products, manufactured in Albuquerque, New Mexico, are a healthy and creative solution for beautiful interiors. Our mission is to bring universal awareness to the value of environmentally conscious products to indoor spaces! Our gorgeous, sustainable clay plasters offer a non-toxic alternative for residential and commercial interior wall coverings and they are unparalleled in quality, health, beauty and value."  You can see their gallery of images here or by clicking on the photo to the right which is an example of what you can see there.  We would love to make a sample for you at no cost in any color if you would like to see what it looks like.

This is an example of what you will see on the American Clay gallery page. We are the official artisans of Nebraska for this product. We have taken training classes and applied over 8,700 square feet of it! Click on the image to see more.

This was one of our most recent projects.  It involved a linen weave of silver and gold metallic glazes in the entry and a bronze metallic plaster in the adjacent room.  We have many sample boards that we can bring to show you and they vary from old world plasters to Shimmer Stone (similar to Venetian Plaster) and faux wood and marble.
