Wood graining level 1
May 6-7, 2017
Graining, painted wood, and faux bois are all names for imitation or simulation of natural wood in any artistic medium.
These techniques have been used for centuries by the Chinese, Egyptians and Romans. To day we use these techniques to transform surfaces from plain to exotic wood surfaces.
The techniques in the workshop can be used on fiberglass and builder grade doors, cabinetry, furniture, columns molding and much more.
