What kind of paint do you use on wood graining?
Two colors of latex paint, some acrylic glaze, and a wood-graining rocker are all you need for the project. Paint the wood with acrylic paint. You can use any color you like, as long as it’s a dark color. I used black, but you can also use white, brown, or any other color of your choice.
If you don’t want to paint the whole piece, just paint a small area around the heart and then paint over the rest of the piece with a darker color to make it look more like a heart.
What color paint looks like wood?
