Hi all,

Not sure if this will be of any use to anyone on here, but thought I'd share it in case it might be of some help...: -

Thanks for sharing, Andy. I use a similar knife method, never thought of the wire brush though.

Liquid MEK/cement is usefull for softening the scoring that simulates the 'grain' too.

I use the above method, but with the back of the blade not the side (had one snap like that... painful)

I also use coarse sand paper, and on thin items I drag/roll a bolt thread down them for shallow effects

As Chris said if you paint it with liquid poly or similar it softens the surface to take a better effect.

Thanks for posting this up Andy.
