Mahogany
Tinos Marble
Mahogany
Honduras mahogany possesses the deep reddish-brown coloration unique to this tropical hardwood. This forest giant may live for hundreds of years before being turned into lumber for yachts, furniture and fine musical instruments.
 
Tinos
Originally found on Greek island of Tinos, this dramatic black and green marble was imitated by Michelangelo himself in the Sistine Chapel.
     
Oak
Granite
Oak
A grainer's portfolio would not be complete without this popular native hardwood. Today, gainers are frequently commissioned to woodgrain metal doors to match the interior trim moldings. In addition, oak can be imitated on furniture or any surface.
 
Granite
From the Italian "grained", granite is an exceptionally hard igneous rock which displays a limitless range of subtle hues and values. Granite is often used by architects, designers and homeowners to suggest permanence.
     
Leather
Striae
Leather
Faux leather can be painted in many color combinations. This finish and method are so versatile that it can be used on large flat walls or deeply recessed moldings. It also looks great on accessory items such as picture frames, lamp bases and small furniture pieces.
 
Striaé
Striae’, literally “to scratch”, is also known as dragging. This subtractive technique requires a fairly mechanical and regimented series of parallel strokes. It can be used alone on walls or trim for a very elegant and sophisticated effect. Also, a variation on this technique is used for woodgraining.
     
Parchment
Travertine Marble
Parchment
A beautiful distressed or “broken color” technique, the parchment technique is accomplished by ragging into a full coat of Pro Faux Open-Time Glaze. Subtractive effects like parchment tend to be soft in appearance, making it an excellent choice for walls, providing a “backdrop” for furniture and artwork.
 
Travertine
Known as “the building block of Italy”, travertine is a sedimentary marble composed calcium from previous sea life. Used extensively in buildings, this marble is used today in floors, table tops and small accessory items.
     
Fossilstone
Stipple Technique
Fossilstone
Fossilstone is a sedimentary marble composed of shelled animals, fish and weathered rocks. Painted as a fantasy marble using highly chromatic colors or in a more natural, earth-toned palette, fossilstone is suitable for any surface where a marble finish is appropriate. For example, walls, floors, woodwork, furniture tops and accessory items.
 
Stipple
Stippling is a subtractive method of glazing which yields a radiant pinprick texture. tippling is a beautiful distressed or “broken color” finish that is simple and elegant enough to blend with nearly any other finish. In addition, this technique can be used in conjunction with the difficult to blend water based finishes as well as for blending areas in the marbleizing process.
