© Copyright - L'Art des Faux Finis The Book of Shadows Since the dark ages it has been a collection of spells, healing lores, incantations, chants and songs collected by a witch or sorcerer.

Serving as a dynamic collection of information, additions were made when necessary to maintain the relevance to the world of changes. Individuals often identified so closely with their living books that they believed themselves to be destined to return to a particular volume through successive incarnations. As a result, such powerful collections of knowledge were often kept secret and held by a high priest or priestess. In recent times, though, the information contained in a Book of Shadows is often made common to a group of people. Their ability to divine the way of things enhances a community of professionals, like yourself or perhaps the person ahead of you….

Like the medieval text known as the Book of Shadows, the following hand-book is specifically designed to help individuals working with architectural finishes to decide on the use of the most appropriate finishes and techniques to obtain the desired results and to painlessly, visually explain the benefits of architectural finishes to customers. Unlike painting, architectural finishes literally open 1000s of new possibilities of colors and textures. Hence, representing the most important challenge to identify the look and feel that suits the customers preferences.

There are many alternatives to the standard smooth concrete finish; it is important to make a few practical considerations. For example, will the surface require frequent and thorough cleaning; will it be subjected to freeze/thaw conditions, abrasion or heavy traffic; and, if it will be subjected to traffic, is good traction a requirement? Once all the practical considerations have been made, you can make your final decision based on such factors as visual appeal, color scheme, and location. Keep in mind that you can use a combination of finishes in a single project.

This technique is appropriate for tables, chairs, mirrors, frames and armoires. It will result in giving your furniture and objects an aged looked caused by fading, discoloration, crackling and wax and dust build-up. All these things add up to create a softer look, subtle color changes and a character that creates a true antique feel. Gilding The art of gilding is of ancient origin. It was lavishly employed in Egypt, Greece, and Rome and during the Renaissance and has been used continuously in Asia. Gilding is the process of applying a thin layer of real or imitation gold to a surface. The process can be employed on wood, metal, ivory, leather, paper, glass, porcelain, and fabrics and is used to embellish the decorative elements, domes, and vaults of buildings. Gold, or a substitute, may be applied in leaf form to a surface prepared by a treatment of size, mercury, acid, or heat. The applied leaf is burnished or left matte. Stenciling Stencils are most often used in paintings and drawings that incorporate several superimposed layers of various colors. These combinations of representations of several layers have been found in ancient caves in Australia.
