Real Illusions is a studio based in Venice and offers a wide range of hand applied faux finishes, Venetian plaster techniques, gilding and murals.
There is a commitment to artistry with hand finishing that we admire and love. Of course, sometimes that love of craft overshadows the truth concerning most faux finishes. At the end of the day it often is just glorified sponge painting and rag rolling. But a good faux marble is an impressive thing, and it's nice to know the artistry is still alive.
