FauxCrème Color™


FauxCrème® Color (formerly known as AquaColor™) is a combination of non-organic color ground in a proprietary water base resin. This special formulation provides superior water and chemical resistance. FauxCrème Color™ can be used alone or as a color additive that may be mixed into AquaGlaze® or AquaCreme™ to produce quality faux and decorative finishes as well as trompe l’oeil, stencil work, floor cloths and murals. FauxCrème Color™ may be used to tint all Aqua Finishing Solutions™ products. Unlike other standard color tints, FauxCrème Color™ retains its color identity, even when mixed together and has a natural translucent quality.

  • FauxCrème Color™ can be utilized in all three categories of faux and decorative color work. These categories are as follows:
    • Opaque Color: All colors are solidly opaque, without any translucency. The color is two dimensional and flat, with little or no depth and light reflection. The colors that are mixed will appear exactly the same color as in the completed work.
    • Translucent Color: Translucent color, commonly known as glazing, is the process where by color is added to a clear medium creating a translucent color glaze that allows the base color/pattern to show through. Because of the translucency of the mixture, the final finish will not be the same as the color you apply. Factors that affect the final color are strength of color to glaze ratio, base color, amount of glaze applied, and how much glaze is removed. This type of color is ideal for toning, multi-layer glazes, antiquing and the enhancement of opaque color.
    • Embedded Translucent Color: Embedded translucent color is translucent color that has been embedded directly into the substrate/base color. This process allows the most light reflection and dimensional quality, creating greater depth and realism. Embedded translucent color allows the eye to look deep into the finish and see subtle color changes. This effect is similar to those found in nature, such as natural marble, eye color, gemstones, and even rainbows.
  • FauxCrème Color™ used directly from the bottle will dry to a hard durable finish and will not bleed even in high concentrations.
  • Because FauxCrème Color™ is a color tinting system, the basic application will vary depending on whether they are used alone or added to another product. Please see the specific product sheets for the exact ratio of color to product.
  • For perfect mural paint, pour FauxCrème Color™ into a wide-mouthed container and leave exposed to the air for one to two days.
  • Always make a sample to ensure the desired result.
  • If FauxCrème Color™ separates or becomes hard from excessive heat, freezing, or loose caps, it can be used by adding a little water and remixing.
  • Because FauxCrème Color™ is pigment ground in resin, it is durable. When used to tint other products, it fortifies the product, making it more functional than universal tints.
  • FauxCrème Color™ is not formulated to be added to oil-based products.
  • FauxCrème Color™ makes excellent paint straight from the container. Once fully dry it can be top coated without smearing.
  • Mix the desired amount of Faux Créme Color™ into AquaCreme™. The intensity of the color will he determined by the amount of AquaCreme™ used. More AquaCreme™ will lighten the color; less will make the glazing mixture darker. The normal color/Créme glaze ratio is 25% color to 75% Créme/glaze.
  • Apply an even coat of the Color Créme mixture with a Foam Brush, using random, even strokes to cover the work surface. Take care to avoid blobs or runs.
  • Remove the brush strokes by blotting gently with a terry cloth pad. Make sure the terry pad is smooth and without folds that could cause unwanted creases in the finish. Patterns may be established in the glaze using a variety of tools and techniques such as dry brushing, pouncing, rag rolling, bagging, etc. Continue to randomly calm and soften some areas of the finish.
  • When Faux Créme Color™ is used in combination with AquaCreme™; the combination will dry to a durable finish, but may be top coated with AquaGard™ or ColorSeal™ for added protection. Faux Créme Color™ used directly from the bottle will dry to a hard durable finish and will not bleed even in high concentrations. Faux Créme Color™ mixed with AquaGlaze® creates a more delicate glaze mixture and will require a topcoat for long lasting durability.
