Many factors go into pricing. Faux Illusions gives a project price. Prices can vary greatly
based on type of finish. A Colorwash is much less expensive than a Venetian Plaster due to
labor intensity, number of layers, and product cost. For this reason it is important to price compare like finishes when getting multiple quotes.
Cost is also determined by room size, ceiling height, scaffolding, difficulty, and required
prepwork. Some finishes require a smooth wall which can add cost to skim coat, kitchens
and bathrooms may require more taping.
Faux Illusions does their best to maintain a fair pricing structure. We are always happy
to answer any questions you have on how we determined the price for your project.
New Construction & Remodeling:
When working on new construction and remodeling projects we prefer to get involved
at the drywall stage so that we can assist you in determining texture for the areas where
you decide to add a faux finish. If you can select the texture we can save you time and
money by letting you know if the area should be left smooth or even needs to be mudded
at all. There are many plaster products now that can be installed directly over unfinished
We can also help you by applying faux finishes to fireplaces, columns, stove hoods, and
other architectural elements.
Faux Illusions can start working on plaster finishes while construction is still in progress. Colorwash and other glazing techniques should be done after all other contractors have
left as they are extremely difficult to touch up.
