In Response To: Faux Finish on Wood Paneling (Rod Thornton)

What you are dealing with sounds like graining. It is done by laying a base coat for the back ground color then using a grain color, usually a dark one, to pull grain lines over the base using a variety of tools both homemade and commercial. A grain comb is one of the commercial tools, feathers, notched wood etc. are examples of homemade ones. Small areas can be repaired with an artists bursh and touch up colors then coated with a lacquer or varnish with the proper sheen to blend with the existing. The lacquer or varnish will cause a color shift so try it first in a small area behind a door or near the floor. The cracked sections will probably have to be feathered with sand paper before you repair the color.
