Faux Finish - Faux painting Montreal

With his training in painting and sculpture, Jean Pronovost can imbue life into any artistic project.  His exceptional ability to work in faux-finis of any kind, the rendering and the care he takes with the finishes, gives every piece a breathtaking realism.

The high-class Italian fashion store Moda Milano requested the services of Créations Jean Pronovost for the creation of a faux-fini in sienna marble. The project was realized on several columns and walls to create a dense and colorful classic look. This added a lot to the unique image and success of this company which was looking for swag and originality.

The faux marble painted on the exterior surface of the whirlpool, first made of wood (masonit), is now finished. We can discern the different types of vein on the faux marble painting done with a paintbrush. The glossy and reflective aspects were executed on the false marble with an urethane varnish and was then polished. This varnish provides two essential characteristics of the project: the durability and impermeability of the faux finish executed on the wood of the exterior surface of the whirlpool and also the shiny aspect of the polished marble.

Decoration & faux finish for the Cirque du Soleil at World Beat Center in Montreal

Decoration & faux finish for the Cirque du Soleil at World Beat Center in Montreal

Several faux-finis were created in 2002 for the Cirque du Soleil at the World Beat Center in Montreal. Inside this old building, Jean Pronovost created imitation marble on the columns and painted the mouldings in imitation wood and brass to bring out the height of the room’s ceilings; the effect was achieved by the use of metal powders and patinas. He then created a fresco on the ceiling to complete the look of the room with remarkable results!
