Where can I learn to do this?




This painting technique, I think it is called "faux", correct me if I'm wrong. Can anyone point me in the direction of instruction on how to learn this technique?

I'm an avid DIY'er and like to experiment

Google is always the first place I look.

It seems that there are dozens of types and techniques for faux finishes to create different looks and textures. Some use paints, some use glazes, some use wood stains, etc. I'm looking for specifics on this particular style.

Check out your library. The two or three volumes of "Recipes for Walls" and other books on faux finishes would be good starting points.
