What is Faux?                                                                                                                                                               

Jason Lavender, OwnerThe words faux finish (pronounced "foe") may conjure up images of bad sponge painting or tacky rag rolling. These simple finishes started the "faux craze" but were merely the beginning. There are endless styles and techniques that can be created in the world of faux finishing.

River City Finishes is set apart by the level of training and field experience our finishers have received. Our lead artisan Jason Lavender sought out the best faux finish schools available. He has studied at the Faux Finish Institute,  Artimatrix Academy of Architectural Finishes, Decorative Concrete Impressions, and other top faux and painting schools.  He has also attended the national SALI convention in Chicago to gather information on the latest faux trends. Jason directs a staff of professionally trained artists who are committed to quality and possess years of dedicated service as professional finishers.

River City Finishes places the client's needs first in its fully customizable art service. Colors, tones, and vibrancy are coordinated to personally compliment the space. Shown here are just a few examples of the truly unique hand-crafted high-quality finishes. These finishes can be used to improve the appearance of any wall, ceiling, floor, fireplace, countertop, furniture, or almost any surface. Whether commercial or residential, no project is too large or too small.
