Finding a clearcoat to hold up to foot traffic and weather would be the key.

Great project and posting the steps! I am so impressed with your lino cutting skills. Those rings are tight! I remember jabbing myself with the linoleum cutter back in art class.

Thanks.
Haha, I sliced my thumb open this week with a utility knife, mostly because my hand was in front of the blade instead of behind it.

This is like watching Houdini reveal his secrets!

I never tried graining with the tools before. So without ever seeing it done, it looks like you roll the graining tool slightly up or down, stopping at certain intervals to create a drag, then continue. Is that correct?

CA, that's why I post this stuff,to remove the mystique. I truly believe that we all have some artist in us, you just need to let it out.

Anyway, yes. You drag or rock the tool as you drag it along the surface. The goal is actually to NOT stop, when you do,you get 'stop marks'. However on something like this, it's a problem and you really won't notice the stop marks anyway once things are finished.

The mark created can be altered by when you decide to tilt or rock the tool,if at all.

Actually, I sell one. Exterior clear topcoat for decks. Neat stuff and possibly unique. Crazy huh? I was quite skeptical myself until I saw the results.

Really cool work, Fauxlynn! Graining combs are a great way to get a quick grainy lookand I'm very impressed with your hand made combs.

Thank you for the complement.

Seattle,huh?How close is that to Clarkston?

Sooo,anyone that would call themselves Faux Wood Paint Pro would know those tools aren't combs.

I'm calling BS on you.

Kind of made ya feel like a bit of a bonehead tho.
We only do large here, no mediums.lol

Lynn, not sure if you have ever seen these rollers or if they would have worked for your project.

Pic is one roller front and back. I got this to use on a garage faux Bois, but, never used it

That looks good. Well beyond anything I could ever do.

I have to ask tho, they sell paneling that looks very very similar.

http://m.lowes.com/pd/FashionWall-47...nel/1000065175

Again not trying to discredit your skills or suggest you yo turn away business, just wondering how many hours to do something of this scale?

I know as professionals we are often way more critical and discerning then our clients or their family and friends. It seems the average Joe's wife often wants the "look" of something trendy without regard to the details.

Like for me personally, I could never bring myself to do the stamped 4x8 paneling in my own home, even just for say an accent wall. But for some, if you install and trim it out, even paint the textured stuff, some people wouldn't care or be the wiser but it gets them the look, ya know?

I'm simply trying to say it's impressive you can command and secure these types of jobs.

sayn3ver-- I'm embarrassed how long it took! But, I totally spaced when I first looked at them and thought the shelves came out. If they had it would've taken five days.

As for getting these gigs, in this case they asked me to come up with a solution to make the shelves look like built ins. They never considered making the wall in-between part of the design.

The type of clients that call me are usually looking for me to find solutions to problems,much like a designer.

Slinger, I was doing fifteen other things as well as working on those damned shelves.

I've lost fifteen pounds since starting this job.
