This short feature describes a hassle-free way to create a "wood grain" finish which should have applications for all types of models.

Rowan, when you say "poster paint", am I correctly assuming you mean Water colors?

Hi Tom

Yes, poster paints are water-based. They are a cheap alternative to gouache and are often used in schools.

All the best

Fantastic tip there Rowan.

Will try your tip but use acrylics and see if it turns out the same way. Enamel drying properties are somewhat similar to acrylics anyway.
