coloring wood veneers

Wood veneers are so popular and versatile. I personally love using them and have amassed quite a collection of them! (noticing a trend, or maybe, an issue? I seem to collect a lot of supplies…)

The veneers come unfinished allowing you to alter them as you choose. On this card, I chose an easy route, spray ink. However, I did not have the “right” shade of green for this card (based on the green patterned paper).

To solve that, I simply misted two colors, green and yellow, onto a craft mat.

By simply placing the wood veneer into the pile of ink, I was able to get the color I desired. Its very inky/messy this way, so I picked up the wood veneer and placed it into a paper towel to remove the excess ink.

Ways to color wood veneers:
  • Spray inks
  • Ink pad-apply directly to the wood surface
  • Color with watercolor markers
  • Color with Copic markers or airbrush
  • Paint
