The art of faux (false) finishes has been used for centuries, and has endless applications. The most popular of these seem to be marble and wood graining. Clients can make a considerable savings buy using this process, rather than having to wear the heavy cost of having to purchase the actual product. Wood graining is used as an alternative to plain painted woodwork or turning a poorer grade of timber into a more expensive and enriched timber.

Other faux finishes also include weathered bronze, weathered copper (verdagre), antique effects such as distressing, gilding, scumbling, crackling, ageing (antiquing) and many more.
