This question is complex to answer. Faux finishing is not a "production process" like traditionally hiring a painter to paint a solid color. Therefore it is a good rule of thumb to figure that a faux finish is about 4-6 times more expensive than a production painter. Of course, it is very hard to gi…ve an exact price. No faux finisher can give you an estimate over the phone, they will need to see the space that they are working with. The estimate will include the cost of materials, transportation, an example board for you to keep, and labor. Labor is also hard to give an exact price because it does vary from region to region. I work out of Cleveland and Tucson. The prices are different for both areas however a standard price for labor could be anywhere from $2-4 dollars per square foot. Hope this helps! (MORE)
