The density of this overlay can vary in application many ways creating variation of shade, color and/or pattern. more than one color can be layered, creating complex subtleties.
Hand painting can be done in conjunction with another finish or stand alone. It can be a nice addition to carry through a pattern you may have in your textiles in the room or continue a theme in a suite. Designs can be custom rendered and colors custom chosen.
Texture adds even more impact to your walls. The look can range from ultra contemporary to rustic. These products are thicker and usually applied with a trowel. The surface can range from smooth to rough. The finish luster ranges from highly polished to flat depending on the application. Venetian plasters, tuscan, and old world finishes traditionally fall into this category .
