I've got a plastic "Pirates of the Carribbean" blunderbuss pistol that I'm repainting for a
friend. It has a cheesy pseudo wood grain molded into the "wooden" sections of the stock.
One of these actually..... ( I took the orange ring off the barrel. )
It's not very convincing but it is what I have to work with. I think it is supposed to represent
a very open grained oak.... like red oak....? Not what I would choose for a gun stock.
I spray painted it black and repainted the gun. Now the wood looks even more plastic
that it did before. I'm not so much interested in aging and distressing it as I am in
just subtly making the faux wood grain stand out so that I do not have a solid even
brown for the 'wooden' pistol grip/stock. ( the silver parts of the gun are now gold/brass )
How should I do that? ( hopefully with paint I already have on hand....? )
I can take a picture if you need one.....
