Signature Surfaces
Faux finishes are techniques that simulate surfaces like marbling, wood graining, leather, tortoiseshell and other organic materials found in nature. Gilding, patination, aging and distressing come under the very large umbrella of a finisher’s repertoire. Stencilling, découpage and trompe l’oeil are other skills that have to be acquired in order to fully round off a faux finisher’s portfolio. Portfauxlio creates custom finishes to enhance the environment you live or work in-from traditional to contemporary, and elegant to eccentric. We can create a gorgeous finish for your project.
Venetian Plasters
Portfauxlio provides installation of authentic Venetian Plasters (also known as Italian Plasters). Because they are natural products, these elements will bond over time, and harden back to an original stone/texture state. It actually improves in appearance over time and has what is called a natural healing process that can repair natural cracking or splitting that could occur naturally over the years due to weather or other natural environmental issues. Some of the benefits of this product include resistance to water and water damage, mildew and mold resistance, and little or no upkeep.
