Wood Texture

Step 1

First you should prime your area in a color that just about looks like light pine. In this case, RAL 11015 light ivory was used.

Step 2

Lightly grind the surface with 1000 grit sandpaper in order to improve the adhesion of your next layer of color.

Step 3

After that you should dust off your surface and additionally clean it with silicone remover.

Step 4

Now, position the first part of the stencil on the surface and secure it with tape so it won't slip when you are using your airbrush.

Step 5

Cover the rest of the disk in order to avoid potential overspraying.

Step 6

Now spray over the stencil with an opaque reddish-brown, thus adding the wood grain effect.

Step 7

You may now remove the template and check the result of this combination of colors. See if you like the contrast.

Step 8

Then take the second part of the stencil and place it on the wood grain you have brushed so far. Repeat step 6.

Step 9

You can paint your whole surface this way, but you should always take care to cover those parts you don’t wish to paint in order to avoid overspraying.

Step 10

Now fill your airbrush with light ivory once more and dilute it heavily with water. With this you may now very lightly spray over the whole picture. This way it looks as if the wood is immersed in daylight, and it will add a certain high-low effect to the grain. The Wood Texture stencil is suitable for a variety of creative uses. Wood is a natural product, two pieces of it never bear the same pattern. And each time you assemble this stencil the result will look different as well.

Step 11

Now your texture is done.
