Try a speckled finish technique to introduce an earthy dimension to your walls.
For Best Results:
Mix the entire quantity of glazing color needed for the project before you start painting. Combining the contents produces uniformity of color. This intermixing is called "boxing."
Paint the base color and allow it to dry completely before glazing.
To prepare your topcoat glaze color, pour 1 part PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® or PREMIUM PLUS® paint (one quart) and 4 parts FAUX GLAZE (one gallon) into a bucket and mix the contents thoroughly. For a more see-through or transparent look, add extra faux glaze to the mixture. For a denser or more opaque glaze color, add more paint to the mixture. The mixture will generally cover approximately 400 sq. ft. Make this 1:4 ratio mixture for all the glaze colors needed.
Pour the color glaze mixture into a paint tray and load a 2" wide nylon/polyester brush with the colored glaze.
Transfer the colored glaze from the brush directly onto the drywall texture roller. Be careful not to oversaturate the roller with colored glaze.
Roll the glaze onto the wall up and down, side to side, and in a crisscross motion to avoid creating hard roller edge lines. The pattern left by the roller will appear as small dots.
Work in small sections. Overlap and blend each section as you go to avoid hard edges.
Repeat the process until the project is complete.
