Project Spotlight: Pennies on the Ceiling

Following the introduction of our 2018 Collection of Decorative Finishes at our annual Open House in March, there has been much anticipation and excitement to see one rendered live and, as usual, the Faux Time Design team did not disappoint!

 
We recently wrapped up a beautiful project featuring our NEW ‘Vintage Pennies’ finish on a 500 sq ft. ceiling over client’s stairway. With scaffolds configured over the stairs to reach the vaulted space, we knew installing this unique design replicating antique pennies in a juxtaposed pattern would be challenging.
 
To create this illusion, we used a stencil pattern designed by Cynthia Davis of Wallovers (by the way — she will be teaching at Faux Time Design in September! See info below). Then we layered several coats of tinted Venetian Plaster to create an embossed effect. The final layer was a mixture of metallic paints and glazes, carefully hand applied to antique the ‘pennies.’ The result was remarkable and our client was thrilled with her ‘one of kind’ original Faux Time Design ceiling.
