New Painting Tool

Painted sheets drying in my studio.
I got this new tool at the hardware store, it is supposed to be for making wood grain effects on walsl and furniture. But it works great on paper. I use 80lb. weight drawing paper I draw in large tablets.
I use acrylic paints, first I paint a sheet of paper a solid color of paint, then I may add some extra color with spray. Then I add glazing liquid to the acrylic paint to slow the drying time down. Then I paint over the sheet of paper again with a different color of paint and run the wood grain tool through the wet paint.
I like using colors that are not natural wood color.
