Faux finishing, the art of making a surface look like something it is not, has interested me since the days when I was an antique furniture restorer.  Many techniques rely solely on layers of colored pigments to create the illusion of depth and three-dimensionality.   This technique creates actual texture on a wall, then, accentuates the effect with pigmented glazes.  The result, is quite convincing and the process is simpler than you may think.
