One of the things we pride ourselves on at Artisan Finishes is our commitment to keeping current on all the different products on the market. As technology changes, products change. Some are improved. Some are removed. New ones are developed. The only way to know what works with what is experimentation and sampling. Whenever we have downtime between jobs, we try to make sure to schedule what we like to call a “play day”. Occasionally, we will invite other artists to join us just to shake things up a bit. And while it does look like we are just playing, this time is very important to our business. This is our time to create new finishes, test new products, or to just bounce new ideas off each other.
