Their factories produce their own raw case pieces. Most pieces are made of medium density fiberboard with solid wood legs. It is then covered with gesso which is a kind of plaster and sanded to a smooth finish. The gesso technique creates a smooth surface for the paint application. The piece then goes to the artist who applies the primary base and hand painted design. Ultimate Accents does not use airbrushes or stencils.
