Painted Ceiling Murals using trompe l'oeil and faux finishes to
create illusions on ceilings...domes, vaulted, coffers or flat have become a specialty of Art Effects.
Faux Finishing techniques, lead in making a
Trompe L'Oeil Art Effect on this ceiling.
We used airbrush, pre-primed canvas.
It worked great for the marble,
it is smooth, light weight and very easy to handle.
Working on sheets 4 feet by 8 feet at a time,
(the size of a sheet of plywood for a work table),
we applied a faux marble finish, using acrylic paints.
Using a clay base wall paper adhesive, we installed the tiles
individually, just like you would install a canvas mural.
The design, cutting and layout took longer
then actually installing the tiles.
