Sherwin Williams Faux Impressions – Metallic Gives Sophisticated Impression
The Sherwin Williams Faux Impressions Metallic is a chic collection of specialty finishes. The Sherwin Williams website states that “its reflective pearlescence evokes the glamour and romance of the Hollywood silver screen, creating an ultra-cool and fabulously fresh look.”
There are 3 types of metallic finishes in this collection:
- Smooth Metallic: a reflective finish with jewel tones and a hard, glossy luster, this finish is perfect for rooms where you entertain. For an average room with 400 sq. ft., it will take approximately 6 hours over two or three days to obtain full coverage.
- Brushed Metallic: Sherwin Williams’ website calls this finish “couture for your walls.” The finish is reminiscent of “designer silk;” Sherwin Williams suggests applying this finish in your dining room or master bedroom. In an average 400 sq. ft. room, it will take approximately 6 hours over two or three days to get full coverage.
- Textured Metallic: Shimmery yet elegant, hard yet textured, this metallic looks fabulous in a dining room or as an accent wall in a kitchen. In an average 400 sq. ft. room, it will take approximately 8 hours over two or three days.
The Faux Impressions Metallic line typically costs anywhere from $80 – $150/gallon, with an average price of $120/gallon, but it does depend on what finish you select.
