Faux Stone Painting


Faux stone painting – St Mary’s Episcopal. Portsmouth, RI

Faux Stone painting at historic St Mary’s Episcopal Church in Portsmouth, RI. The church underwent a complete interior renovation which included extensive plaster repair and decorative painting. The vestry hired a preservation specialist to assist in returning the interior finishes in the church to the original. Egan Church Restorations were hired to do all the plaster repair and painting.

The parish vestry spent quick a bit of time, researching parish records and photographs to determine various original finishes. Before beginning the faux stone painting work, we put up a number of different shades and combinations of paint for the congregation. The off white – white shades were chosen because they were closest to the original and also to assist in reflecting light.

Faux stone painting – St John’s in Middletown, CT

Egan’s Church Restorations were chosen from a number of bidders for the interior renovation of St. John’s historic church (1890) because of our liturgical designs and past history of exceptional quality work. Our liturgical designer developed a number of design changes for the building committee to choose from to help highlight the architectural features of the building and offer a “prayerful” feeling.

A “faux stone” finish in light tan shades were added to all the upper and lower walls to break up the “plainness” of the walls. We then added a light blue “rag roll” finish for the ceiling to add a little contrast and simulate a “sky’ effect. Gold paint highlights were added to the ceiling ribs to offer a little contrast.
