PLEASE NOTE:The embossed veneers have been highlighted with a darker pigment to accentuate the designs for web viewing. The embossed pieces are actually one color and appear lighter than shown. They are subtely elegant as is or can be highlighted for a bolder look. Lightly rub the high points of the design with a Rub n Buff or Guilder's Paste type pigment to create more contrast. Mix colors to create one of a kind finishes. The wood veneers can be cut with scissors, utility knife and guillotine paper cutter. Use a non water based glue to glue them onto cuffs etc. to avoid paper backing to loosen. We like to use E-6000 as the excess glue can be peeled off when dry. The wood veneers come with a lacquer finish.
