  • “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!

    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

  • “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. 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

  • ''This course was a life saver for an immense project...

    ...wood graining an entire cement building into rough pine.

    Without this training to make my own combs and tools, color and glaze formulas and all aspects of Antique Pine, it would have been an utter failure.

    Thanks to The Master Course, I have an important, happy client that is set to bring in more work.

    ~Nori N. Professional Faux Finisher

    I feel more confident taking on jobs.

    Thanks Norman!"
