STIPPLING | STORE-BOUGHT TEXTURED PAINT

STIPPLING

To create a stippled effect, you need a special tool known as a stippling brush. Prepare by painting the surface with a coat of matte oil- based paint and mixing the tinted oil glaze to a creamlike consistency.


1. Work in areas of 1 sq yd (1 sq m). Stab at the wall with the stippling brush to create a mottled effect. Try not to slide the brush across the wall.


2. To create an even coverage you may need to overlap at adjacent areas. When necessary, wipe off the glaze from the brush with a lint-free cloth.


STORE-BOUGHT TEXTURED PAINT

A light, texturedtextured look can he created with a cut-foam roller and store- bought textured paint. Prepare the surface with a suitable undercoat. Roll the textured paint onto the wall with broad, overlapping strokes. Most store-bought textured paint is white, so if you want to add some color, wait until the paint is thy and then apply a coat of colored latex. The texture will still show through.
