I have just come across this technique and seems to havea lot potential for texturing carved wood particularly for snakes etc

You just press a blunt tool into the wood making a depression in it then sand the wood back nearly to the depressions you made ,then steam it

It lifts the wood you pressed down giving a snake skin texture

this is a link that will demonstrate the technique by janel jacobson http://www.janeljacobson.com/carvings/397inprogress.html
