Glazes and Aging techniques
Glaze is a semi-transparent coating that is applied after a cabinet has been painted or stained. It adds depth and color to the finish to make it more dramatic using extra shadows to accentuate surface details.
We offer two glaze application options, a Standard and a Brushed option.
Highlighting is applied to the entire surface of the cabinet and doors and then wiped off, leaving hang-up in the recessed areas.
A special technique that leaves brush strokes over the entire surface and makes the finish slightly darker.
The aging process creates soft corners and profiles on doors to give the cabinetry a timeworn look like antique furniture. We offer two aging techniques: Eased Edges/Corners and Burn Thru.
All corners of the door are sanded to create a worn edge before stain is applied to give doors a distinctive aged style.
After the stain or paint is applied, the sharp edges are worn to recreate the signs of aging. A final glaze or topcoat completes the finish.
