Faux finishes by Traditional Painter specialists
Lee Simone is Traditional Painter’s Faux Finishes Consultant.
Faux finishes include stonework; brickwork; marbled fireplaces and free-standing baths; stone flooring; broken plaster; trompe l’oeil; distressed / antiquing effect on furniture; slate; wood graining. All these effects are created with paint.
The only limit to the paint effects that Traditional Painter, Lee Simone, can recreate is your imagination.
Much faux work is fantasy. You can create marble effects in properties where, to all intents and purposes, marble would be an unlikely “local” fit. Or you can recreate views of the Med from the middle of town in the UK! On the other hand, Lee also replicates wood finishes that fit right in. In other words, he can recreate wood grain to raise the perceived quality and value of “cheap” doors and furniture.
Faux work can be fun too, with cartoons on pieces of furniture, animals falling out of walls, and all manner of trompe effects.
A craftsman and decorative artist
Lee prepares samples, and then, using tried, tested and proven materials, he sets to work. Firstly, he will prepare the base coats, before applying the different effects, using assorted brushes and implements. He then protects the surface against normal wear and tear with durable clear coatings.
As the Traditional Painter Faux Finishes consultant, Lee is always happy to advise, and share his knowledge and explain how he tackles certain projects. He is very enthusiastic and can do, which counts for a lot, when you are looking for something special but you are unsure of all the possibilities.
You can get a run down on Lee’s business and craft credentials here, and from there, contact him direct to discuss your next project. You will be surprised how much work Lee can do in a few days. He can create an effect that could be a talking point in your home for years.
Wherever you are in the UK, just ask Lee, no obligation.
