Some of Marc’s work is featured in this book on Faux Finishing.

Faux finishing, or decorative painting, is the process of applying multiple layers of interior house paint and glaze to craft a textured or photo realistic pattern, such as wood grain, marbling, a cloudscape, and onward to more complex murals and trompe l’oeil. Most of the other faux-painting titles in the market focus on either room shots *or* finished paint swatches but do not successfully evoke both inspirational and hard-working images. Designer Faux Finishing fills that empty niche.
