Rob has stop selling the foils but he is still a superb faux artistian (as you can see) and stays quite busy in the Chgoland area.

what do you start with when you do the faux? is it a cheaper wood?

Although it will takes years (if I am lucky) to attain the talent to do that kind of work, as I type this staying in New Jersey waiting to take my first Faux finish class at Dundean Studios tomorrow. A baby step, but a step forward none the less.

bikerboy,

You may find the faux forum very helpful. www.fauxforum.com
They have a link to a site were you can purchase DVD's from some of the best decorative painters in the field. I have several of them and they are an excellent resource @ $50.
Sean Crosby from the Mural School has 3 wood graining DVD's and Nicola Vigini from Vigini Studios has 1.

Pierre Finkelstein book The Art of Faux as well as Professional Painted Surfaces by Ina Marx are both must haves.

If you are interested in wood graining you will need quality brushes.
Pierre Finkelstein sells every thing you will need. www.fauxbrushes.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?

Best of luck to you
