Scratching Woodgrain Textures Onto Wet Paint With A Knife
In the video, Linda tends to avoid the highlighted parts of the tree and sticks to scratching the shadowed areas. She also avoids most of the areas where a branch meets the tree, so the branches won’t look cut off from the main trunk. While you’re scratching, you’ll also notice that the scratches don’t show up as much in wetter areas, and will show up more in dryer areas. You can use this knowledge to your advantage and control how prominent you want your texture to look.
