A Wall that is special


You know that a wall in my house is just not any wall




It is more effective if the walls have an "orange rind texture"




You will need 2 colors of latex paint. Use the brighter color for the first coat. Let dry and apply second coat. Use a large, almost dry brush. Apply in circular motion to achieve a "cloud like" appearance.


With a soft cloth apply, with a circular motion, a brown furniture oil stain. With acrylic paints stamp design onto walls in an irregular fashion. Last coat, stamp more leaf designs with bronzing powders or metallic paints. The thin lines are painted with a small brush in a twirling motion. My stamps were cut from old computer mouse pads.




Can you believe that this is the same wall as above?


This paint technique works well with other color combinations. Each coat of paint and each color contributes to the whole. The result? Your walls will always glow, no matter rain or shine, day or night, sleet or snow.
