Stone Blocking Paint Effects

Stone blocking combines paint effects, trompe l’oeil and faux stone painting techniques to create the illusion of a real stone wall.

Each stone block is individually hand painted to give a more realistic effect, adding layers of paint to re-create the individual characteristics of the surface and mortar lines. Any stone can be re-created, and textured compounds can be added to the paint to create an even more realistic effect, adding to the architectural illusion, and offering a great practical solution where the natural product might be too impractical or difficult to install.

Stone blocking is a fabulous faux finish that can be used in many ways and in many different rooms.  A subtle soft sandstone or granite effect can create a timeless elegance in a hallway, whist rustic York stone or brick works brilliantly in country homes and barn conversions.
