Completed in 2007, the Shaw condominium required the workmanship of several artisans in many fields. My contribution was as decorative painter and faux finish artist. During 9 months of work I helped create what the local media coined as the “Palace in the Sky.” A palace indeed is what the Shaw penthouse resembled.
During the next few days, I will be talking about the different decorative finish techniques and materials I used in this project. I believe that if you are a faux finish painter, you will find these techniques useful. Photographs of the different finishes will be accompanied by step by step instructions including a novel way of applying venetian plaster, as well as a product list and tools needed.
These are a few photos showing the kind of workmanship that went into the project. Quite a place to live huh?
