          I love the weathering on the wood. Very convincing

            Hi Landrel:

            Why does it work better to dry brush opposite the simulated wood as you are doing in the video or does it matter? Will you get a different result if you dry brush with the simulated wood grain? Then you dry brushed with the simulated grain when you did the water line?

              Sorry for the slow reply very busy this week. By dry brushing across the grain, only the high spots pick up the paint make them stand out more. If you go with the grain you end up with the lighter colors in the crevices giving you a solid color. I did the water line in the direction of the grain because that area is/would be in contact with the water making it a solid color..
