Wood-Grain Wrapping Paper

Steps:3
Beautifully grained woods are nature's masterpieces, but, as style editor Tom Tamborello demonstrates, it is possible to re-create their sinuous patterns and harmonious colors on paper, using a wood-graining tool and latex paint. The decorated paper is perfect for wrapping gifts, and because you control the "grain" and color of every piece you create, each sheet of wrapping paper is unique. 
Materials
  • Glossy, nonporous paper
  • Low-tack tape
  • Latex paint
  • Glazing medium, for latex paint
  • Mixing bowl or bucket, for latex paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Wood-graining tools
