FAUX MARBLE PAINTING
St. Michael’s Church. Pawcatuck, CT
St Michael’s Church underwent an extensive “re-building” of their historic church after structural problems were discovered. Engineers determined the site was unsafe and the original church had to be closed. After an extensive capital campaign, the parish was able to rebuild and recreate their historic church.
Egan Church Restoration’s were hired as a subcontractor and our team of artists were asked to paint the plain wood altars with a faux marble painting. This dramatically changed this plain wood altar and reredos to a beautiful “faux marble finish”. The finish was so convincing that the local newspaper in their article about the re-opening stated “all new marble altars were installed for the renovation”.
Faux marble painting on the front and rear altars was so well done, many parishioners thought they were real marble!
Faux Marble Painting – Church Columns.
St John’s Church. Middletown, Ct
Egan Church Restoration’s were hired by St John’s Church in Middletown, Ct for a complete interior painting of their historic church. Our Liturgical Designer suggested a faux marble painting of the columns to match the existing marble altar. He suggested this would help visually join the nave and sanctuary together. In addition, we suggested creating new molded plaster capitols to be installed to add elegance to the church.
Faux Marble Painting – St Joseph Cathedral.
Egan Church Restoration’s were hired by St Joseph’s Cathedral to move a historic wood altar from a closed church. Originally just a simple off white finish with some gold trim, we suggested that it be repainted and all new color schemes be created for the sanctuary. Part of this new scheme was faux marble painting of sections of the rear wall, the main altar and columns to match. These simple changes completely changed the sanctuary from plain to elegant.
