Hove Painting Studio paints murals directly onto walls. Paints used are acrylic or water-based. Some faux finishes require oil base stains or glazes. The average execution takes approximately 10 to 14 days. Painting styles are primarily: trompe l'oeil (fool the eye), architectural, floral and photo realism. These techniques are used in order to create the customized illusion and atmosphere which opens a space.
