The doors, stripped of multiple coats of paint, reveal the beauty of their hand-painted, faux wood-grain finish.

The faux brick on the walls I have shared with you already, and now the door is finally finished.
Darlene, I have done faux finishing six years ago with my sister but materials and methods have changed, Plus I can’t remember what I did!! I love this whole look with the painted door & the bricks – I have done the bricks in my extra bedroom, now I think I will try to do this door- awesome!


I’ve always had difficulty with the wood graining tool, just manipulating it the way I want. After ten minutes, blend with a soft badger brush, which you can get at most paint and art supply stores. Many artists finish by rubbing in bowling alley wax with fine steel wool, but a spray coat of polyurethane can save time on smaller projects.
Find photos of the real thing, test your paint recipes and techniques on sample boards first, and be prepared for a little trial and error. Since the Renaissance, artists have used faux wood graining techniques to give simple furniture, doors, and trim the look of much finer woods like tiger maple, burled walnut, and flame mahogany.
All you need are two colors of latex paint, some acrylic glaze, and a wood-graining rocker, which can cut shapely heart grain into wet glaze.


Depending on the wood you’re simulating, you might try tools like combs, feathers, sponges, and stipple brushes. Add a paint comb, which lets you vary the pattern by creating some knot-free "planks," and a mini roller and paint tray.
