Woodgraining

Woodgraining, or “graining”, is the attempt to reproduce the appearance of any cut of timber using paints and glazes.

Why does wood look the way it does, and how can we reproduce it as a paint effect?

Starting with a base coat, we will examine each stage to producing:

  • Oak (heart and quarter),
  • Birdseye maple,
  • Mahogany (ribbon and crotch)
  • Burl walnut.

By the end of this class you will have the skill to match and reproduce any of the above cuts of timber and the confidence to bid and complete a graining project for a client to a high level of quality and durability.
