#HowToTuesday - Episode One

#HowToTuesday (How To Hand Paint Wood Panels) by Seth Mananquil


It has been a FEW WEEKS but we are FINALLY able to put together this very first HOW TO TUESDAY POST. This will be the first of many how to tips in customizing. Please feel free to comment below and let us know what other how to tips you would like to see in the coming weeks.

NOW LET US BEGIN...

STEP ONE:

Gather your supplies...

 TESTORS 2 and OFF BRAND 5/0 BRUSHES

 TESTORS ENAMEL 1116 GLOSS CREAM PAINT

 TESTORS ENAMEL 1166 FLAT BROWN PAINT

 TESTORS ENAMEL 1185 FLAT RUST PAINT


STEP TWO:

Using the TESTORS IVORY enamel paint, begin to outline the area in which you would like to paint your wood panel on as seen below...You are using the TESTORS 2 brush in this step...



STEP THREE:

Using the TESTORS FLAT BROWN enamel paint, begin to paint and fill the area/space outlined by the IVORY enamel paint as seen below...You are using the OFF BRAND 5/0 brush in this step and not the TESTORS 2 that is in the pic below...



STEP FOUR and FIVE:

Using the TESTORS FLAT RUST enamel paint, begin to paint horizontally curb lines that looks as close possible to wood grain as seen below...You are using the TESTORS 2 brush in this step...

It is advisable that you practice this particular step on a separate casting at least until you feel more comfortable painting the wood grain on the custom you are working on. It is best that your enamel paint is not too thick nor too thin. Practicing will give you the feel as to what amount of paint is right for this step.

After achieving the wood grain look that satisfies your eyes, you will now use the IVORY enamel paint once again to paint the horizontal line 2/3 the height of the painted area. You will also use the same paint to go back and paint the door lines that separates the wood grains.



FINISHED CUSTOM with the WOOD GRAIN EFFECT

I hope that the step by step process were explained clear and understandable enough. If not, please feel free to visit my YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/mrsenctvt/user to find the "HOW TO VIDEO."

Thank you all for your continued support and invite you all to give this technique a try. You may or may not like it but at least after giving it a try you'll find whether this is something you'd like to incorporate in your future custom project. That is all for now. Take Care and God Bless.
