Lincrusta is a deeply embossed wall covering. A British invention, it was the brainchild of inventor Frederick Walton who patented linoleum flooring material in 1860 and lincrusta in 1877. Lincrusta was used in interior decorating and railway carriage decor. The linseed gel continues to dry for many years, so the surface of this wall covering actually gets tougher over time, offering a natural paintable wallpaper with 3d patterns.
Modern interior design with paintable wall coverings
Lincrusta is made from a paste of gelled linseed oil and wood flour spread onto a paper base. It is then rolled between steel rollers, one of which has a pattern embossed upon it. Both oil-based and water-based painting ideas can be successfully used on lincrusta.
Modern interior design with lincrusta can be enhanced with various effects from simple color washes, marbling and glazing, to more elaborate gilding and ver de mer treatments that look fabulous with modern wallpaper patterns.
Modern interior design with ceiling design in vintage style or wall design with embossed Victorian look are great ways to create amazing rooms with modern 3d wallpaper patterns and painting ideas.
