I got this small sheet years ago from a small printer who was about to close down. Didnโ€™t know what to do with it at the time. Now I know ๐Ÿ˜‡

so I go to the Michaels website, and see a few things that would work for other projects, like the 'white washed fence' paper................ I feel such a dope, I think I REALLY need to get out more.... I just can't believe I didn't think of such a simple solution ......

 

Why has this been hiding from us this entire time???  Its a conspiracy I tell you.  Not sure by whom, but SOMEBODY!!!

 

Dark woodLight wood  AND you can score a big discount.  On paper that's .14 cents for a 12x12 in sheet.  And I just spent like an obscene amount of $$ for AM... Oh boy...

I acquired a similar sheet too long ago to remermber where from, but it was curled , perhaps like it was used to wrap cigars or something of similar diameter.

It's thinner than paper.

 

I also recall using pencil sharpenings to make the flooring duckboards in a Hurricane, but that was in 1/48.

So went to Michaels and picked up a few sheets.  The printing is not bad, but the scale is pretty large - you will have to be very careful what part of the sheet to use at 1/24,1/28, 1/32.  But they do look good and the price is right!

That looks AWESOME.  Nice color too...  There is a smoke shop in my neighborhood.  I may have to stop by and see what wood they have.  "Hi, I don't smoke, but you know those sheets of wood the cigars are wrapped up in?  Can I take a look and see what you have?"   :whistle:

Just reminded me I have some self adhesive wood that can be run through an inkjet printer. Must dig it out and check the brand....

My Father told me two things would happen as I got older.
I can't remember either of them....

I slapped this together. Just download the image and print in high quality on your inkjet printer. I figure with some Tamiya Smoke and some oils, it can work.

My question for the wood decals as well as the spraying stencils is about scale.  It seems to me that, even in 1/32, there's a lot more visible wood grain than there should be.  I feel that the old WNW oil paint method provides a realistic scale effect without the grain being too big.
