For some furniture that is frequently used, such as tables and cabinets, some businesses usually use steel wire balls to wipe out the marks on the surface, and then use the teacup to burn the marks after painting, and use a knife to make a few marks. It looks like it is used. The same for decades.

In order to make a patina, some businesses will use lacquer and wax color as a fake, and even use shoe polish.
