Try a speckled finish technique to introduce an earthy dimension to your walls.
For Best Results:
Mix the entire quantity of glazing colour needed for the project before you start painting. Combining the contents produces uniformity of colour. This intermixing is called "boxing."
Paint the base colour and allow it to dry completely before glazing.
To prepare your topcoat glaze colour, pour 1 part PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® or PREMIUM PLUS® paint (0.95L) and 4 parts FAUX GLAZE (3.79L) 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 colour, add more paint to the mixture. The mixture will generally cover approximately 37 sq. m. Make this 1:4 ratio mixture for all the glaze colours needed.
Pour the colour glaze mixture into a paint tray and load a 5.1 cm wide nylon/polyester brush with the coloured glaze.
Transfer the coloured glaze from the brush directly onto the drywall texture roller. Be careful not to oversaturate the roller with coloured 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.
