Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clashf Fantastic product!
This kit worked exactly as described. I wanted the walls to appear to be real wood. I have shown photos to people and they are convinced we have real wood on our walls and cannot believe it is only paint. The walls were basecoated and then dried for 24 hours. I then mixed a gallon of Behr glaze, from Home Depot, with a quart of paint. I worked on one section at a time by applying the paint/glaze mix, then using the wood graining tools to get the look i wanted. It was very easy to use the tool to achieve the look.This is a great product for such a low cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NDeangiver Good Product for Price
Product is not branded as a Linzer but as an Allway. Othen than that, the tools worked well for me. I wood grained a steel entry door to home with it. I did not find the stiffness of the rubber to be a problem, however I did have issues with trying to keep it clean, the grooves could have been deeper to hold more paint as you use it. After about 5 foot of use it started to "spit" paint out of the grooves, which wasn't a bad thing. I think it actually improved the look of the grain to more closely resemble a true imperfect piece of wood. Paint was applied thinly but still seemed to have an issue with build up. After using a chip brush to fade it in, door looked phenomenal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bbp16 4" Wood Graining Tool
I orginally bought a 3" wood grainer but I just happen to see this kit with a 4" wood grainer which I know it probably would do the job a little faster because of its width. I was helping my friend sand, prime and repaint her kitchen cabinets which were 35 years old and adding another color to enhance the look of faux wood graining on them, made them look like she just purchased new ones.
For a first time user I had fun doing it but for my friend didn't quite get the hang of it. Practice on a cardboard before trying it on your profect to get the look your looking for.

I used this to recreate the wood grain on the vertical parts of a doorway using a light brown base and then mixing the dark brown with 1/2 craft glaze. The effect was great and I used the other tools to create the total effect. It works best on a flat surface but I was very satisfied with my results.

Worked great, great price, happy to find. A little hard to get used to, but with a little practice got the hang of it. Very professional results.

I love this faux wood grain set! The 3 different tools allow you to create an authentic wood look in no no time. This was a great deal, even w/paying shipping, it was cheaper than buying 1 tool separately. was so easy to use, my children even did it! My husband thought i bought the sheet i practiced on. He was super impressed with how good if looked. Love it!!!

The item received was either long out of date, and/or had been stored in deplorable conditions. A wood graining tool must be made of SOFT rubber; otherwise it is no more effective than, e.g., a plastic scraper. The rubber on the item I received was hard as a rock. The tool is totally unuseable. Do not waste your money on this item!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by amanda This product was a real bargain.
I purchased another wood graining rocker a while back and it wasn't nearly as good as this one. This allows for more control especially when working in a vertical position. The small rocker is great for use in small areas such as window frames.
I was disappointed that the full instruction book was not included.
