Texturizing Walls
oil-painting-canvas-Abstract-Red-Flower-Thick-texture-high-quality-handmade-home-decoration-office-wall-artTexture paints have tiny granules that absorb and reflect light, making it perfect for hiding minor imperfections while keeping the depth and concrete appeal of a fine, textured painted surface. Textured painting is an ideal and economic way of creating a natural, earthy feel which also evokes the organic tones of stone and sand.
How to apply Texture to a Wall:
Step 1 – Prepare Surfaces
Properly prepare the surface by cleaning it thoroughly and repair, remove any nails or other imperfections.
Step 2 – Apply the Finish
Using a suitable roller, apply the textured wall paint onto the prepared surface.
Step 3 – Apply the Base Color
After you have allowed time for the sand finish to dry completely (24 hours or more), roll on your choice of base color.
Step 4 – Create a Glaze Mixture
Mix together the Latex Glaze material with paint in a color different from your base color.
Apply color to the wall by dampening a lint-free cloth, dip it into the mixture, and use a “washing” technique—a circular or wide-sweeping motion.
Work in small sections, taking care to maintain a wet edge to avoid hard, overlapping lines. For different texture effects, vary your stroke techniques.
