Artisan distressing packages for Cornerstone and Millennia feature hand-applied styling simulating the natural appearance of aged wood and the look of old world craftsmanship with a modern factory finish. Adding Glaze or Patina will accentuate the marks and enhance the aged look. Because much of the process is done by hand, the frequency and placement of distressing marks will vary.

Below, you can see the marks and techniques that make up each package. We’re showing everything with Chocolate glaze to enhance the distressing.
