Paint Finishes

Creating a color finish on our wood turning is truly a challenge. varnishes, milk paint, dyes, dry color pigment, glazes, shellac, natural oil and wax are all used to achieve the desired result. The final product is the end result of a labor intensive process taking as many as fifteen different steps to transform the bare wood turned center into a beautiful [piece for a lighting fixture. An additional waiting period of fifteen days between finishing steps may be required to complete one color finish. These special techniques are used to ensure the texture and the look of a fixture that replicates a museum artifact. Our museum finishes are standard features for all wood turning chandeliers.
