ANSWER:   The difference between Faux Finishing and Decorative Painting, is that a Faux Finish should resemble something found in the physical realm such as; marble, suede, glass,  wood, stone, leather and so on.  Whereas Decorative Painting is simply a finish that decorates the surface with color and movement.  Though a Faux Finish may be referred to as 'Decorative Painting' the reverse is not so.
