There are three main types of rough finishes. The first is called draw stone. This is the most basic of all finishes. It is strictly for release. The second is a sand blast or glass bead. This produces a matte finish, creating a non-slippery, non-reflective surface. The third type is a textured finish. This is done to create a specific appearance, such as, wood grain, leather or pebbly textures.
