Quote from: cthulhu77 on April 04, 2009, 10:54:16 AMI have a massive wood grained project coming up, but I am going to just go photograph some lumber sheeting, and make decals from the reduced pics. For graining propellers, just doing the drybrush thing works really well.

Quote from: frank2056 on April 04, 2009, 02:16:15 PMI wonder if cigar shops give away old tubes with the wood inside?
Quote from: The Rat on April 04, 2009, 10:15:37 AMI've often thought about using those too, but as I don't smoke there's not much chance of getting any. Maybe we could get anthonyp to save us a supply? And that sounds like a good idea Hobbes, any pics? Of course the grain would be way overscale, but if it were in-scale it probably wouldn't be recognizeable as wood and the effect would be lost. Effect is more important than accuracy anyway, nuts to the JMNs!
