Amish Maple Bentwood Rocking Chair with a black rub through finish
Rubbed finishes consist of a contrasting layer of color over a ground color that is then rubbed back with an abrasive, we use sandpaper to expose the ground color peeking through. Soft rubbing, which lets only the ground color through along edges, tends toward a more elegant finish, while heavy rubbing, along with distressing, this style will work with country or antique.
A black rub, which consists of an almost black glaze over a stained base, is very popular these days and is featured here. Rubbed finishes differ from wiped finishes, where a transparent glaze is brushed over the ground and then wiped away in varying amounts. The techniques bear similar results and are often used on the same piece to create a complexity in the appearance.
