    If I understand, Bob, you mean to leave a higher section of wood than the overall piece?

      Yup. See pics.

      191201_0002.jpg Done on a flat with corner of file tang--could also use a nail. Just push in and drag. If you do this on a "lump" of wood then it looks a little more realistic.

      Think about the times you've snagged a shirt on a nail or a sharp edge. The nail catches and pulls the shirt as you're moving. So you have a tear and then a bit of cloth mushroomed a the end of the tear.

      Hope that helps.

        Thanks, Bob and your approach is different from what I was thinking and might be the best. Sure looks fine, and thanks for the pics.

            i am wondering if it would work to be able to stain or paint underneath the torn area to show skinned knees below the rip sort of idea , some pants are made to look threadbare so that skin underneath shows through. with the jean material being whitish in the threadbare area

              I could paint it that way but it will take more time than I have. I need to get some done by Christmas...yeah late start. I might discard the whole idea if my "quick" ideas take too long.

                I like the look of Bob L's third photo. Gripping a nail with a pair of pliers and dragging it along the wood for a short distance will tear up the wood fibers - might look like ripped cloth, especially if the bottom of the groove is painted an appropriate color.
