Many times custom techniques are developed to meet the special needs of clients.
Murals have always been a favorite project at Fresh Paint with children's murals being the specialty. African plains, jungle scenes or fantastic forests of unicorns and butterflies. For the more adult venue vineyards, gardens and oriental scenes have been done in the past. Tromp l'oiel, a French technique for painting false windows and other scenes is also popular.
A creative partnership has been developed between Gross Tile Custom Flooring and Fresh Paint. A few years ago Gross Tile decided to start offering their customers the option of Concrete countertops and shower and tub surrounds. They contacted Linnette Lee of Fresh Paint to create the custom faux finishes and staining techniques that would give the concrete a personal and artistic touch. This partnership has been met with great success. Fresh Paint has been able to customize colors and stain for clients and to also add many interesting decorative elements, such as stenciling, sports team logos and hand painted designs. Some of the innovative elements have been to recreate the look of stone and tile.

She can create a work of art to place in your home that expresses a client's personal vision or you can look at her own work and see if there is a piece that appeals to you.
Paneled murals were introduced at the Symphony House 2005 and have become very popular. These murals are usually a set of 3 canvas panels that connect to create one scene. These panels can enhance a large wall space or can be used to interconnect two areas within a home. Fresh Paint can help create the style, size and number of panels that would be appropriate for your home.
