The Quarry - Fine Floors & Faux Finishes

In October of 1996 IGMA (the International Guild of Miniature Artisans) elevated  Renée Kutcher to the Artisan level for her faux finishes. It has been the highlight of Renée's artistic career. Presented here are just a few ways the floors can be customized with faux finishes. You have the options of buying the basswood floor blanks and painting them yourself or a hand painted kit to finish in your project. Renée also takes custom orders and make finished floors that will just slide into the room. Faux finished floors and kits are available in custom colors to match your decor. Private Collection's list of clients is ever expanding and Renée has done custom orders for many other Artisans and Fellows including Sandra Wall, Judee Williamson and Nicole Walton Marble. See Renée's roomboxes with more of her floors and faux finishes.

Private Collection is pleased to offer a variety of custom finishes including, but not limited to: marble, granite, slate, malachite, lapis lazuli, Mexican tile flooring, rust, grunge, and verdi gris. These finishes are not limited to floors either! Furniture, pottery, and architectural details such as columns and fireplaces lend themselves beautifully to faux finishes. Currently Renée is working with other IGMA Artisans and Fellows to create quality furniture that can be fauxed finished. These will be signed limited editions of 10 and then they will be released as cast kits for use in classes and home projects. The first should be available in the late spring.
