Hand Painted Aspen

Hand painted wood graining (Faux Bois) can be applied in architecture to most any surface for various reasons. A project’s budget can be refined by implementing hand painted Faux Bois where possible. Having a craftsman paint Faux Bois avoids milling, shipping and handling costs of such a heavy product. That same craftsman can also make an exact match to the color of adjacent wood species if need be, optimal when the rarity of a particular species may be in play. Structural limitations can also contribute to the wise choice of painting wood grain in architecture, on furniture or on pedestals. Weight load limitations and intricacies of architectural decoration can be surmounted with a painted surface as an alternative. Overall installation time can be more swift with hand painted mimicry such as this and more importantly, the choice to hand paint wood surfaces can assist in limiting the overall ecological impact of any construction project.
