faux fresco wall mural ornament

faux fresco wall mural in bright italianate colours

colorful Italianate design using textured acrylics

This Italian design style has been rendered in a faux fresco finish using impasto texture and powdered pigments bound in acrylic. The intention is a replication of true fresco without the strictures and limitations imposed by working the walls with the real technique. This faux method immediately imbues the wall with a feeling of age, and that of a warm, worn surface. The subtle texture and translucent quality mitigates and softens to some degree the strong pigments and punchy chroma used in the design.( Back to Faux Fresco Murals Page )
