Scratching Woodgrain Textures Onto Wet Paint With A Knife
As the paint dries, you can add more paint on top so the texture doesn’t appear too white. Scumble the paint on – that is, make sure the brush isn’t very wet and lightly brush the paint on top. This adds a rougher-looking texture which is perfect for bark. You can alternate between scratching with the pocket knife and scumbling with the brush, thereby adding layers and depth to your tree.
