Highlights corners and recessed details of doors.
Uses less pigment, for a more subtle treatment.
This glaze concentrates in the corners and recessed details of the doors, as well as leaves a subtle glaze over flat surfaces (especially in open-grained wood species).
Heirloom utilizes over-sanding, artisan glaze, sand-thru and rag marks to simulate an aged, antique look. These effects are random in location, frequency and intensity. Heirloom is available in all solid paint colors.
Simulates decades of wear and tear with random dents, marks and gouges.
1. Rasp Marks: Edges of doors are filed with a rasp to simulate edge wear. 2. Oversanding: Edges and details are rounded and eased prior to finishing. 3. Blade Marks: A blade edge is used to simulate natural checking and cracking. 4. Awl Strikes: An awl is used to create holes that simulate worm tracks. 5. Dents, Nicks & Small Scratches: Random marks create a time-worn look.
Heavy Distressing provides a more heavily worn aesthetic. Distress marks are not coordinated in location and will not be visible on mouldings, fillers, toekicks or face frame components.

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.
Distressing patterns in Old World are coordinated and carried over to the face frame and adjoining doors and drawer fronts, for a more authentic appearance.
