An IDCEC Approved 1.5 hour Continuing Education Course

Nearly all top design professionals have one thing in common: they've all mastered the creative use of decorative finishes to enhance their designs.

Out of favor for nearly a decade, faux finishes have suddenly burst back onto the scene in Europe and are beginning to make their comeback in this country, thanks largely to a whole new line of eco-friendly materials and digital technologies that are inspiring the creativity of leading designers and the decorative artists with whom they collaborate.
