Faux Tin Works

When Chris Plummer, founder of Faux Tin works, once asked a client if he could faux-finish his tin ceiling, the request was denied. But Plummer was hooked on the idea. He scrounged up some old pieces of pressed tin on his own and reimagined them as a canvas: Instead of the typical white tin you find cladding the ceilings of quaint junk shops and bakeries, Plummer’s ornate pressed-tin squares are hand-painted in the style of exquisite gilded plasterwork. The sought-after panels have been installed as ceilings, backsplashes, wainscoting and friezes.
