ecorative Painting has been around for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used decorative paint techniques on their palaces, temples, homes and statues. Michaelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel into wet plaster in a technique known as fresco. Mixed in with the marble at Versailles and other European palaces is a surprising amount of faux marble, wood and stone. Wealthy Victorians used decorative finishes and trompe l’oeil as status symbols. Art Deco, Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveaux have all utilized the amazing versatility of paint as a means to transform both interior and exterior spaces. Ament Interiors offers most any type of faux finish, decorative painting and murals.
