WhatIs?:

A Faux Finish?

Faux is a French word for false or fake. It is often used in English phrases such as faux pearls
Faux finishing has been used for millennia, from cave painting to Ancient Egypt, but what we generally think of as faux finishing in decorative arts began with Plaster and Stucco Finishes in Mesopotamia over 5000 years ago. 
Faux became hugely popular in Classical times in the forms of faux Marble, faux Wood, and Trompe l'oeil Murals. Artists would apprentice for 10 years or more with a master faux painter before working on their own. 
In modern day faux finishing, there are two major materials/processes used. Glaze work involves using a translucent mixture of paint and glaze applied with a brush, roller, rag, or sponge, and often mimics textures, but it always smooth to the touch. Plaster work can be done with tinted plasters, or washed over with earth pigments, and is generally applied with a trowel or spatula. The finished result can be either flat to the touch or textured.

Exposed Brick & Faux Block Wall

No matter what the desired look...you can have it!

Exposed brick is done by taping out brick in selected areas, then texturing over the tape to make it look like a brick surface.  Then the texturing the remaining wall areas to look as if plaster has fallen off to expose brick beneath it.
