Prepare the surface vinyl siding that looks like wood. This is crucial for any faux painting project, so as not to stress. Wash the surface with a good detergent or disodium phosphate solution and let it dry. Look for chips and scales paint. Sand them and fill with wood kittens. Allow the curing agent to be emptied according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Then sand it. A rough surface will be difficult to work with and can make your wood fibers look odd.

Select wood color. Old me New oak? Mahogany? Visit a home improvement store and look at the cabinets to make a choice as you know you will like. Purchase color and gel stain. You will need more color than the gel spot. Unlike color, gel stain is sold in oz., not gallon. The gel stain becomes darker than the color and when dried it will approximate the dominant wood color you want.

Have a shop employee help you choose if you are not sure what shade to buy. If you are in a large box home improvement store, you can take the expedition in the cabinet department and tap the color you want. The paint should be near background tones you see in wooden cabinets, often a shade of orange or mustard yellow. You can use acrylic or oil paint for vinyl siding that looks like wood.

Apply the color to your clean, smooth surface. Allow it to dry to ensure it does not lift off when using wood-grain tools. Read the label to find the recommended drying time for your color. Brush on the gel stain, and then use wood-grain tools to transform the gel stain into a faux wood fiber. Wood-grain tools are rounded and work by rolling them slowly as you drag them towards yourself. They also have a toothed edge that you can drag to create a stretch of finer lines.
