drag a Doctor Ben's Fine Scale Nail Hole Tool (#1492) sideways the

wood out on a sheet of newspaper or glass surface and stain all
sides of the wood with Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood (#1097) and allow
to dry. For more character, consider using a brass brush on the Aged
Driftwood and then applying a second stain color like the finish

weathering technique. Now do you understand why we need to write
