We are passionate about preserving the authenticity of traditional Adelaide heritage house finishes! Lancaster Painters Australia offer painting methods that are reproduced using the same paint methods and materials employed after which painting methods began to dominate the industry. Our work is based on exhaustive and continuous research into methods, materials, techniques and styles. Each job is individually hand-painted by skilled artisans without compromises in quality, historical accuracy or consistency. Working from original paint scrapings, Lancaster Painters Australia has successfully reproduced paint finishes including decorative finishes by understanding documentary evidence and accurately reproducing the style, character and look of the original period look. We are committed to using the correct top quality paint and materials for all heritage work, and recommend those with low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).

Reference: Gary Lancaster

Gary Lancaster worked as a painter and decorator on our heritage (Victorian) home in North Adelaide during 2021 – 2023.

He was always polite, punctual, reliable and provided clear quotations for his work, accompanied by a contract.

He has extensive experience and deep knowledge of authentic design and colours appropriate for historical properties of different eras. He is skilled at faux marbling, wood graining and wall paper choice and application. He was willing to share his understanding and experience with us in a generous and helpful way.

The end result is a beautiful home, evidenced by the accompanying photographs.

If you are looking for a genuine and skilled craftsman to provide advice and practical workmanship, we recommend him.

Heritage Tower House Faux Marble Testimony

Adelaide Painters Decorators Heritage House Hand Painted Faux Carrara Marble


I have pleasure in recommending Mr Gary Lancaster as an outstanding artist and craftsman in the field of faux marble.

There are six fireplace surrounds in Tower House which are made of Carrara marble and one such made of intricately carved slate. Mr Lancaster has treated the slate mantelpiece and pilasters so cleverly and artistically that they are now indistinguishable from those made from Italian marble. In fact, so expertly has the conversion been effectuated that the faux marble fireplace, because of the intricacy of its mouldings, now looks superior to the fireplaces in most of the other rooms.

In addition to his extraordinary creative skills Mr Lancaster is a student of heritage craftsmanship, and he brings to his work a broad and deep knowledge of the various crafts which have contributed to the South Australian architectural tradition.

I was impressed by the fact that Mr Lancaster was able to offer a firm quotation for the work that was required, together with exact dates for the commencement and completion of the work. These guarantees were scrupulously adhered to.

My experience of Gary Lancaster’s work is limited to this single article; but based upon that experience, I have confidence in recommending him as a superb craftsman who is both artistic and knowledgeable, and who adheres firmly to ethical principles.
