Default Permacast Fiberglass Columns

How do I get Permacast Fiberglass columns - Roughsawn - to look like stained cedar?

.hbgcolumns.com/products/permacast-roughsawn/#product-tabs-sections

Instructions say to use a solid stain or a paint, but the pictures on their website show a real looking cedar finish. How do I accomplish that?

"For the finish coat, it is important to use a high-quality coating. High-quality exterior acrylic solid-body stains or
exterior acrylic paints should be used."
"NOTE: Do not apply oil-base solid stains, gel stains, semi-transparent stains, or transparent stains to RoughSawn®
columns. Do not apply polyurethane or other clear finishes to RoughSawn® columns. Do not use any finishes or
solvents containing acetone, lacquer thinner, or MEK. Failure to follow the recommended installation and finishing instructions will void the warranty."

The pictures on the website look like they were done by dry brushing solid stain. If possible I'd practice on a column before it is installed and have a hose and scrub brush handy. If you don't like what you're seeing, hose and scrub it off and try again. With a little practice you should be able to achieve the look on the website. I wasn't overly impressed with the look on the website. To me it looked like solid stain dry brushed over fiberglass and not real cedar. But hey, many people don't have any idea how nice real cedar looks, so I suppose it will hold up to the scrutiny of the status quo.

Thank you! These were 1/3 of the cost of cedar, plus they are structural. I just want them to look real from the street. If I don't like how they turn out, I think it will be easy enough to prime and paint white.
