OK, I'll start the Faux Finish HOW TO'S
 
Why there are no threads concerning anything "faux" I don't understand.

I'm a decorative painter in San Diego and I'd like to stimulate some Faux Finish discussions , How To's and question answering.

Here is a sample board I made for a client recently. He wanted something avant garde for a niche.
The finish is a very cool variation of a strie effect but has a rippled tecture and uses a cheap venetian plaster, a metallic plaster and a stain. Here's a pic of the board.

Full step by step instructions can be found on the HOW TO page of my web site.
