    Hi Kathie. It's a faux finish technique using APC Clear Glaze and paint. First you have to cover the wood or finish with either a Top Coat or wax. If not the Glaze will not glide over the surface. After mixing the Glaze and paint, use a balled up plastic bag to create the effect. Next use a thin paint brush to highlight the veins. Final step is to cover the top with either a Top Coat or wax, then buff. Thanks for asking.
