If you are a discriminating and detailed faux painting artisan ready to advance your faux finishing business to the next level, Decorative Finishes Studio's Faux Finish School can provide you with the creme de la creme of the industry's decorative finishing materials,
The Faux Effects ®RS Series systems.

The unique countertop and floors techniques and layered systems taught at The Faux Finish School using Faux Effects ® RsCrete™ products will put you in far advance of your competition.
At The Faux Finish School, you will learn proven "to the surface" RsCrete™ finishes.

RsCrete™ is a patent pending, superior interior/exterior decorative concrete floor-finishing product formulated specifically for creating strong veneered surfaces along with beautiful design elements over: concrete, tile, even wallboard with tough, long lasting durability. Great for producing designer quality pool decks; a business in itself. RsCrete™ is a translucent, yet tintable and versatile product. This revolutionary product is unlike anything else on the market. Far lighter than concrete products and as easy to apply as LusterStone®, RsCrete™ will forever change the way you approach concrete finishes!

Krista Vind, one of the foremost installers of RS Crete, has traveled the southeast creating both beautiful and functional surfaces for countertops and floors.

Krista created a custom RsCrete™ finish for a major historic downtown renovation in Mobile, AL for a local developer, The Drummond Group, their contractor, and designer. With the help of Faux Finish School cabinet and furniture instructor, decorative artist, Cindy Everett, the two have finished over forty RsCrete™ countertops in this upscale modern style loft renovation alone. Together they also created and installed a custom RsCrete™ finish for Martin Alan Hirsch’s own home in Louisville, KY this year. Both Krista and Cindy offer and install creative counter finishes for their clientele.

Krista’s RsCrete™ decorative concrete flooring work has been featured in Paint and Wallcovering Contractor magazine, Modello Designs, and upcoming in World of Concrete. She has created RsCrete™ decorative floors for both interior and exterior applications, including historic replications of terra cotta tile and beautiful patio designs.
Her RsCrete™ countertop works are featured in a 2009 issue of Faux Effects World magazine.


 

The Faux Finish School's staff instructor Krista Vind , assisted by staff instructor Cindy Everett will ensure that you receive a thorough understanding of the unique interaction between Faux Effects ®Rscrete™ creative materials as well as develop the necessary skills to create your own unique finishes. Martin and Krista were both personally taught the RS Series systems by Raymond Sandor - CEO - Faux Effects International.

Both Krista and Cindy have been working with the RsCrete™ products in the field since the RSCrete™ line hit the market and now have an incredible portfolio of RsCrete™ Finishes!
