Neither....It's a Raised Stencil Design. It is a special order plaster called Palette Deco (metallic silver) w/ a metallic graphite glaze. This plaster is difficult to use when using a stencil. The plaster dries veryyyyy quickly and you must wash the stencil every 3rd time to prevent buildup so as to have a nice application. The stencil is also a "custom" order alligator stencil. Was created in the downtown Austin Austonian condominiums. It's definitely not a design I would recommend for a diy. It's complex in the application w/ having to "lap over" each application and knowing from experience where to place each application. Then you must know how to "cut down" the stencil when you get around the lightswitches/pipe areas. Also the plaster is a little pricey $100/gallon w/ S&H & tax. This "small" guest bathroom required 3 gallons plaster plus other supplies. It's definitely an upscale design. Hope this helps!

Oh and one other thing...we had to remove the toilet/sink just to have maneuver room to get a beautiful professional pattern. When you're going around the light switches/toilet & sink pipes is where it gets really complex.
