I need to make a sample board, more precisely a worn, weathered one. An actual old piece of wood shall help, but tips and advise are very useful. Thought about making a few texture rollers since I lived far from US, and by the time I order and receive shipment oportunity may be gone, at least to make the sample for a client. Coloring the foix bois is of no concern Any tutorial reference on this, tips of any sort? Your input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

 For a sample I would just make an embossing skin from a piece of old wood. Shape your sample out of foam or lathe and emboss. Do several at the same time, and present the best one.

I keep searching on internet, ferrocement work... but search ain`t fruitful as yet. Glad, I`m on the right track, sort of. lol. A roller would probably make a monotonous print which probably works ok for bark, not so original for wood grain, knots, cracks, splintered ends, and knots. So I`m aware of the detail carving ahead besides the embossing skin. If it turns out good, I will load up on internet the step by step pictures tutorial, hoping some people may benefit someday. Thanks!
