I am making a pirate ship and was wondering if there is a special tool to make the wood grain texture for the boards?

Any help is soooooo much appreciated!

I have one that I have had for years. You can buy one at Micheal's . They carry Duff's new small impression mats. I believe he has a wood grain in one of the packages. Also look in other sections of the craft stores. They will have them in other areas, like clay or etc.

I just recently made a pirate ship. I used modeling chocolate/fondant and cut out planks. Once they were on the cake I took a small, sharp knife and randomly scored lines in it. I then painted the planks with gel colour mixed with vodka to give more colour variation. Good luck!

Thats what I do, I just take my fondant/gumpaste and score it. I have done quite a few signs and peirs, and even a wooden cross and they all look like wood. I just go crazy with the pointy tool in my wilton tool kit thingy.

i purchased Duff's woodgrain impression, i would suggest using half fondant/half gumpaste. i found just using the fondant, the impression was not as crisp as i had wanted. but still nice. and they are small as well (impression mat). HTH
