Walnut is perhaps my favorite faux wood to paint. Maybe because I struggled for so long to get it right.
Lack of good instruction is one of the reasons I decided to teach graining.
It took me much trial and error to arrive at a teachable, repeatable method for Walnut.
I love Walnut for interior and exterior doors, millwork and furniture.
The deep, warm tones lend themselves to many architectural and design schemes.
