That looks much more like standard woodgrain. I'm curious what technique you are using?
The first coat is Rustoleum Almond Glossy.
Sanded with 400 dry grit
50% paint thinner 50% gel stain Mahogany Minwax
The entire area brushed with that mixture in light and large strokes
a very thin brush with 100% gel stain Mahogany Minwax to draw very thin lines.
Start designing with large brush and thin brush the effect you want. (the hard part) Use paint thinner also for effect.
Take me three hours work.
The next step, when dry for three days, is several coat of Helmsman Glossy outside varnish with sanding in between with 400 dry grit.
These pictures are not with the varnish. I will post pictures when the varnish is done
Looking forward to the final pic
As am I. I'm very curious to see hos this turns out.
Thank you, I will post pics.
Looking forward to them!
The primer is done. Now the sanding with 400.
progress is looking good.
gees - I haven't found time to recoat the rust repair on the bottom of my doors, let alone tackle something like this.
Thank you all
Why not use real wood paneling? Most is thin enough to attach with glue & use the molding from a wagon with fake shelf liner. Just a thought. Looks good so far. I am going for a different effect on my wagon. Using a Red Chrome vinyl to sides & tailgate. Stay tuned.
Thanks for the idea.
I just want to try to paint the wood grain, as a fun thing to do.
The wood grain, and the final color on top of the primer was just finished yesterday, varnished and done.
Stay tune, pictures are coming today!
Wish model t could weigh in on this. He has some pretty nice homemade wood grain paint jobs on one of his cars. It looks great! You planning on doing the rest of the car right? Will you be adding trim? I think you should for a cleaner look. It helps the transition from “wood” to metal
It is a work in progress. Yes I will put some trim, and you right it make the transition better. The lower rocker panels will be painted black. A lot of work to be done, but it's fun to do.
That is the state of the car now:
