Old World Distressing is the most aggressive distressing treatment offered by Huntwood and is designed to simulate the extreme wear and tear that cabinetry would acquire over decades of use. Old World Distressing employs all of the characteristics found in both Light and Heavy Distressing treatments, but in greater frequency and intensity. Adding Artisan Glaze to the Old World Distressing technique is optional, but highly recommended. As shown in the examples above, adding glaze will greatly enhance the aged effect that Old World Distressing is intended to create.
