ANTIQUED  
This finish may not be available in all patterns. Please see specific pattern page for finish options.
Antiqued finishes require multiple steps. First, the panels go through our sand and prime process using our standard lacquer primer. The surfaces of the carved MDF panels are then inspected and cleaned. A base coat is applied from multiple directions to achieve proper coverage on the surface. After the base coat has properly cured, the panels are inspected and cleaned again. The next steps include applying exclusively formulated chemicals prior to a buffing technique thus creating a weathered or “Antiqued” finish. After inspecting, a clear sealant is applied as a final stage to lock in this unique and beautiful finish. The sealant is then cured before final inspection and packing.

Finishes are achieved by hand buffing and/or hand sponging a “break away” coating. These finishes will vary from panel to panel and are NOT designed to “flow” across panel seams. Trim or transition strips should be used at the seams between panels to break up these inconsistencies.

Metal
This finish may not be available in all patterns. Please see specific pattern page for finish options.


Metal finishes require multiple steps. First, the panels go through our sand and prime process using our standard lacquer primer. The surfaces of the carved MDF panels are then inspected and cleaned. The panels are then sanded and primed again with a specially formulated primer. Metal ore is mixed into a liquid form and applied to the panels. After the metal has properly cured, the metal surface is hand-buffed revealing an authentic true metal finish. As with any raw metal surface, natural oxidation starts immediately. The metal surface requires several coats of hard finish wax to slow this natural process down. Finger printing and discoloration can be caused by natural oils found on the hands. Rubber gloves are required during these processes and should be worn when unpacking, handling and installing panels with a metal finish. The final results give a stunning appearance of a carved metal panel. Please note the Rusty Steel is a transferable finish, any top coat applied (due to the PH value) will cause the rust to revert to its base Ore state. The oxidation process is a natural process and the color ranges and patterns are uncontrollable on the panel surfaces.

A base coat is applied from multiple directions to achieve proper coverage on the surface. After the base coat has properly cured, the panels are inspected and cleaned again. The next steps include applying exclusively formulated chemicals prior to a buffing technique that exposes the base coat. After inspecting, a clear sealant is applied as a final stage to lock in this unique and beautiful finish. The sealant is then cured before final inspection and packing.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a finish that is done by hand. There are variables in the final appearance  as shown in the photos. (review them) It is highly recommended that a control sample be received  / reviewed to match the customer's desire for the final order.

Sandblast
This finish may not be available in all patterns. Please see specific pattern page for finish options.


Sandblast finish is available on select cores and patterns. For acrylic cores, the panels go through a process that yields a uniform, frosted finish to the carve pattern. On other cores and select patterns, the sandblast operation produces an appealing coarse texture similar to natural erosion.

Sanded/Primed
This finish may not be available in all patterns. Please see specific pattern page for finish options.


Sanded and Primed panels are available in either a lacquer or water based primer. Unless specified otherwise, all sanded and primed orders will be processed with a lacquer primer. Please check with the manufacturer of your paint to see which primer should be used. The sand and prime process consists of sealing the back side of the panels with a clear sealant and then hand sanding the entire surface of the carved MDF panel and applying a coat of the specified primer. The primed surface is sanded and another coat of primer is applied. After a light sanding the panels are inspected. Depending on core material, pattern and primer type, the panels may require an additional primer coat and sanding. Sanded and Primed panels will arrive ready for final painting saving you labor costs and time.
