Wood effect spray painting

As the title says ,any advice, hints appreciated.I want to spray a few metal interior panels ,and the wood grain idea came to mind,I have seen some very good examples on a Google search but very little on how to do it.
I am fortunate to have spray equiptment and plenty of time on my hands .

It will take plenty of time as the main thing in wood graining is your practicing..the application is fairly simple and that is to lay down a base and let it dry throughly.. then with a contrasting color lay down a thin coat..taking a dry brush, sponge, rag or other similar item drag it over the wet paint streaking it and leaving bare spots or streaks. once you get the idea then you can make different patterns, simulate knot holes, use different shades of paint to get the look that you like..

Get good at it and you can be asked to do wood grain for others..Some guys are painters and some are Mattise or Van Gogh..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

There are many ways ot woodgrain-the old fashoined way (as originally done on Cars and Furnitiure) and, the new way-Hydrographics-I guesws it depends on how much you wnat to do yourself (and learn) or, do you just send it to someone who can do it for you-
