As you enter the studio be prepared to
"bridge the gap between reality and illusion"

Decorative Finishes Studio & The Faux Finish School

After entering the studio you will find yourself stepping back in time to
the Italian Renaissance and Classic Rome.


Marble Room
The floors are concrete, painted to resemble Italian wood; the drywall is painted
to resemble brick; and the walls are painted to resemble an italian fresco.
Not until you step into the room do you begin to realize that you must
touch each surface to truly understand the power of faux finishes.


If you believe you just visited Italy during the Renaissance in the first room;
why not imagine you are visiting Rome during Caesar's reign when you visit this room.
The walls are a handplastered Italian fresco finish chipped away to expose an aged
Cabanel masterpiece underneath. The floor is concrete, handpainted
to resemble a gem and marble medallion inlay.

Martin's famous"room of sample finishes".
