    Review

    Steve Harrington is such a talented artist and excellent teacher! Steve amazed me with his detailed explanation as he effortlessly demonstrated venetian plaster, marble and woodgrain finishes.

    Because Steve has so much experience, he is able to give tips and tricks that will be invaluable to the beginner. Even expert painters can learn new (and sometimes easier) techniques that will help them grow their business.

    After watching this Series and practicing the techniques Steve teaches, I think someone could go out and paint decorative finishes for homes and businesses and make a good living at it! This DVD comes highly recommended!

    Sorry to say a total waste of money. The woodgrain tutorial is useless. Not a professional faux video in the least. It's basically nothing but a Sherwin Williams ad with hardly any useful information beyond the needs of most basic hobbyist.

    I guess I should have paid closer attention to the cover of the DVD on the web page as I didn't realize that the DVD just covered Venetian Plaster, Woodgrain Finishes and Marble Finishes. I was expecting all of the Faux Finishes to be included such as leather, sand grain, crackle, etc. For the price of $29.95 I don't feel that this DVD really gives value for money. The ad for the DVD should highlight better the three areas of Faux Painting featured on it. I was very disappointed.

    I could have learned the same information from some free videos on youtube. The "instructions" are very basic. about 3 minutes worth of woodgrain video total. I expected a lot more for $20.

    wood grain tutorials werent really available in the internet searches so i chose to purchase this dvd. The dvd is really short but tells you what you need to know and exactly the products hes using and generally likes to use. He will show you quickly how to create a wood grain of no particular species but it will be a wood grain, it kind of looks like cherry ill be using the style on speakers so it will still be pefect for what i bought the dvd for. I believe a person could figure out how to make the grains i listed below if they gave it a good bit of thought with the information he has given. if your looking for oak walnut or maple keep looking because hes doesnt teach a specific grain; i found a dvd set for multiple types of grains elsewhere but it came out to about $20/grain with all the techniques this dvd was a good price coming out to $10/technique.
    it seems hes going to make another dvd on faux topic since this one just came out it may be a while before he makes another one.
