July 6, 2012

We at the Fifth Wall Design Group personally offer a wide range of finish treatments that can be applied to your home.

Trompe-L'oeil is an art technique involving extremely realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects really exist, instead of being just two-dimensional paintings. The name is derived from French for "trick the eye", from tromper - to deceive and l'oeil - the eye.

A mural is a painting on a wall, ceiling, or other large permanent surface. Murals date back to prehistoric times. The Caves of Lascaux in southern France are an example. The term became famous with the Mexican "muralista" art movement. Types range from fresco, to oil or water based mediums.

Faux Finishes
Faux Finishing is the preparation and finishing of a surface to imitate the appearance of a natural material such as wood or marble. It is typically used in buildings where the actual matter would be cost prohibitive.

Custom Stenciling (Children's Themes)
A stencil is a template used to paint or draw identical patterns, symbols, shapes, or from an original object. A stencil technique in visual art is also referred to as "pochoir" (french for stencil). This is a great activity to do with your children to involve them in your home improvement project.
