Omega - Distressed Techniques

Antiquing

Antiquing

Antiquing creates the family heirloom appeal by using lighter and fewer effects than Vintage Touch. The antiqued look of natural wear on wood from years of use is achieved by lightly sanding over the profiles, worm holes, light dents, and chiseling with randomly scraped profiles before finishing. Since the effects are applied prior to finishing, there will be no sand-through to expose the wood on stained or opaque products. Custom Il or MDF door styles are not available with Antiquing. Antiquing is an artistic application of a special effect. Not all of the listed features in the chart below will be applied to each piece, the application is random.


Vintage Touch

Vintage Touch

Give your cabinetry the rich patina of an antique with Vintage Touch. All special effects are applied by hand for a randomness that replicates the natural wearing of wood through the years. Vintage Touch creates an aged appeal by randomly distressing the wood with dents, worm holes, rasping, sand-over of profiles, sand-through, a grey toned edging, and black speckling. Due to the random placement of the effects, every door will be unique and may not receive each of the special effects.


Vintage Clear

Vintage Clear

OMEGA CUSTOM ONLY TECHNIQUE. Vintage Clear is a lighter touch if distressing with only sand-over and sand-through only. All special effects are applied by hand for a randomness that replicates the natural wearing of wood through the years.
