Walker Textures® Transition: 2 Ways To F-F-F-Fade Away

True Fade

Walker Textures® True Fade provides an etched finish that subtly fades into a clear, fully transparent surface. This made-to-order solution opens up tons of creative possibilities. You now have a sustainable solution that provides coverage where you want it while transitioning to clear areas to benefit from maximum light penetration into the space.
