Faux Wood


James developed his faux wood painting techniques on movie and theater sets. He's painted all types of wood -- from pine and oak to mahogany and maple, on up to the very complicated wood grainings of curly maple and crotch-grain mahogany. His faux wood not only looks like real wood, it even feels like real wood.
