Colour Washing

Light and airy, reminiscent of a warm summer's day. Create the look of time-worn elegance and sun drenched walls.

  1. Paint the wall with desired base colour. Let dry 24 hours.

  2. Mix a 50/50 paint and glaze mixture.

  3. Dampen rag with water and dip into paint mixture. With a large circular motion apply mixture to walls. Continue until the whole area is completed.

  4. Apply additional colours as desired. Let dry between each application.

  5. (OPTIONAL) For an architectural relief as shown in front page picture, use stencil 1680-924.
