This was a parade home I did a few years ago. It was down in a basement and I worked using spotlights. All the builders were all working at the same time to try and finish up, every time they started a table saw the power went out. LOL. A little frustrating but such a fun job!
The door leads to a wine cellar, The builder wanted me to do an outdoor scene of a Tuscan Bistro. Like your looking onto a street.
I did the sky with clouds, but you can't tell in the picture, All of the faux stones, plants, shutters, etc.
This is a shot of looking at the street lined with buildings. Lampposts, A clock tower in the distance, plants, etc. I Loved doing this mural as the homeowners let me do what ever I wanted.
A little added info. Its done with regular latex wall paint, so its washable. The stone took me the longest.
I generally can do a mural in a day, This one for the sky, Two wall murals, stones,
took me four days to complete.
The pictures are a bit blurry, sorry!
So this is what I do for a living! I hope to share some how to's with you all in case you'd like to try your hand at faux finishes yourself.
