Reviews from students of Perfect Woodgrain Courses…

“I’m really grateful to you for sharing your knowledge as I couldn’t have done it without your excellent books and videos!

Although I’m an artist and have worked in glazes prior to this, your system was so easy to follow and made this project a breeze!

Thanks again for your Perfect Woodgrain course. The step-by-step process was as if you were teaching me one-on-one.”

~ Debra W. Faux Finisher specializing in historic home restoration


“Normans lessons are by far the best and most detailed available.

He has exposed the nitty gritty instructions that all real craftsman want to know–not just the generic guidelines that are cookiecut in every other book. It is well worth the investment!”

~Christopher S. Cabinet reface and door restoration pro


“You have been so great at getting back to me and providing helpful information. Thank you Norman!”

~ Jordan W. Faux Finisher specializing in Faux Wood Doors


“This course rocks! I’m already working on my first wood grain dash.”

~David R. Antique auto restoration hobbyist


“Great product, Great communication!”

~Stacy T. Professional faux finisher


“This course paid for itself on my first project TIMES TEN!”

~Mike T. Furniture repair professional


“This guy is pure genius! I learned more about wood grain and colors from this artist than anyone or anywhere in my entire career in the film industry.

His instruction has been instrumental to the way I finish movie props, today, which require faux wood.

One of the best! I can vouch first hand that if you just talk with Norman for 15 minutes, you’ll take away more knowledge than you’ll know what to do with.

Not trying to sound like an infomercial… just being totally honest! Thanks bro for all your hard work!”

~Ken P. Film set and prop designer


“I’ve obtained a small library on decorative painting, many on faux wood graining. None compare to your generous lessons. Thank you Norman.”

~Adam P. Expert grainer, high end trim and cabinet finisher
