Special Effects by Leichsenring Studios
Leichsenring Studios shares some truly stand-out projects
Here is a handful of projects that truly deserve their own space.
|These columns are truly in a class of their own. I
worked on these with two of my favorite Texan ladies, Ashlie Bickford and
Kindra Binge of A Fabulous Finish. The surface was first gently textured. An
embossed (raised) stencil of floral ornament was then layered. Next, antique
gold foil was applied and then glazed. The raised stenciling was dry brushed
in muted metallic colors.
The piece d’resitance is the flower elements that were dressed in Swarovski crystals. The capitals were painted in a metallic teal paint. Breathtaking!
|This next example is an exercise in tone-on-tone. This sample illustrates a technique known as bas relief. This sculpted plaster is an elegant, yet organic, answer to completely change the mood of a room.|
|The painted illusion in the master bedroom tray is a great example of the power of paint. Viewers are convinces the “painted” moldings are undeniably real.|
|This master bathroom is imbued with more than one special effect. Every inch of wall space is covered by the mural. The biggest challenge was to find a design that would manage to diminish the many pieces of hardware on the ceiling (vents, fans, lights and sound system.) The walls were of an eight foot height, and then slanting inward, raise the ceiling another two feet. Flowers and fern specimens were chosen personally by the client. My favorite part, the touch of whimsy in the transparent woodland fairies that hide throughout the room. Enjoy!|
