I want to age/distress some pine wood for a few projects.
I want to raise the grain like you would see on some engraved signs.
Not as liberal as that but enough to raise the grain like you might see on some old weathered wood.
Is there any other way to do this other than SANDBLASTING, Which I can not find much information on.
I would like to raise the grain enough for any one to notice. Would like to raise it to where it would be smooth and not require any or much sanding.
If sand blasting is the way, what kind of equipment would I need and what type of “media” would best work for me? Sand Soda Walnut shells Glass beads, steel shot?
I have tried using a metal wire wheel on a drill but it IS NOT SMOOTH at all and leaves unattractive scratches.
