Brick fireplace - faux brick effect mural
"We hired Tamara for some restoration-type work in our home. We had done some renovations, including taking a wall down next to our fireplace, and found that, unfortunately, the brick did not go all the way up to the ceiling. Our fireplace is very unique in that the brick was salvaged from Pioneer Square long ago when our house was built. With the brick being so special, it meant that it would be hard to match with new materials. We wondered if the cinder block could be painted to look similar to the rest of the fireplace, and so we contacted Tamara. She was great and very professional, from the project proposal through the completion of the work. We are thrilled with the outcome! Thank you, Tamara, for helping us make our first house our home!!"
Comment from the Artist:
"Brick fireplace - faux brick effect" mural is a mural I created for a wonderful couple who live in Renton, WA.
It was great to learn about the history of the house and the fireplace bricks, which were salvaged from the Pioneer Square in Seattle.
I matched the different shades and colors of the bricks, and added some accent shadows to make the painted bricks look even more real.
It took me six hours to paint this mural"
