FINISHES / Antiquing Effects

DISTRESSING

Simulates wormholes, dents, and cracks, creating an antique, rustic appearance.

SAND-THRU

An antiquing style where the solid color paint or stain is sanded through to reveal the natural wood beneath. The use of sap cherry is highly recommended for this technique. Knob holes can be pre-drilled to your specifications so that the Sand-Thru effect can be applied at the point of logical wear.

WEATHERING

Mimics naturally weathered wood by removing the soft summer grain and revealing the texture of the hard winter grain. Combine with distressing, Sand-Thru, or glaze for a custom look. Recommended on pine, white oak, or red oak.
