Because we will be trying to make paper boxes that look like real furniture, it is important that the images we create on our paper look like real materials. They could be metal, plastic, or other materials but cabinets are traditionally made out of wood. So it is important to be able to make convincing looking wood out of paper. It we will have to make sure it looks heavy, that is has the right grain, that it is not to bright, and the right finish. We may need matte spray on top of our paper.

This artist uses materials and manipulates them to look like wood and have texture. This would make out work look professional and would make them look less like a temporary project.
