"To achieve a similar effect to the painted item in the image, I started by giving the resin base a coat of primer to ensure the subsequent layers of paint would adhere well. Once dry, I applied a basecoat in earthy tones to the wooden boxes, making sure to get into all the crevices for a realistic effect. For the sandbags, I chose a lighter shade to contrast with the wood. I then drybrushed over the textures to highlight the details and gave it a wash with a darker shade to accentuate shadows and depth. Finally, a bit of light dry-brushing with a very light beige or off-white on the highest points completed the textured look." - Stuart
