Faux (Fake) Painting & Restoration of Historic Faux Painting is a unique class.

Before the 1870’s it was not very classy to have much real, natural wood. You could really show your affluence if you could afford an artist to grain your plain pine or poplar to look like exotic woods such as mahogany, rosewood or even quarter sawn oak. Stone was also faux painted in many high end, historic houses.
