Have you ever looked closely at the complex grain design on a piece of wood? Graining is the practice of imitating wood grains on non-wood materials, bringing an appealing aesthetic to materials used both inside and outside of the home.
Grain painting techniques are different from traditional forms of painting. It creates a faux finish through the use of materials and tools such as thinned low-sheen enamel, oil-based glaze, satin varnish, sandpaper and flogger brushes.
If you want to add a beautiful finish to the exterior or interior of your property — or even to a piece of furniture — grain painting is the way to go. However, grain painting is one of many specialist painting techniques that require a certain level of technical expertise and care. These can include anything from painting marble or murals to stippling, distressing, rag rolling and colourwashing techniques that give an ordinary surface a specific look.
Because of this, whether the job you have in mind is grain painting or a similar type of specialist application, it’s advisable to seek the services of a painting specialist who has spent years learning how to do wood grain painting or any other specialist technique, and can produce a high-quality finish.
A paint job that involves using special techniques, such as grain painting, is technically different to applying a conventional coat of paint. A graining specialist will perform multiple responsibilities to achieve an authentic wood grain finish.
