How to Texture Paint a Wall | Paint Techniques

In this video of decorative painting techniques,
we’re going to be exploring how to paint over a textured surface. You may have a wall or a
ceiling that already has texture applied on it so, what are the things that
we can do with texture such as this, for example. Now, the first thing that you
must do is seal the texture. You don’t want any glaze or paint to actually
go into the texture and then, have your finish fail. So the key is always to use an eggshell or
more of a sheen paint as your base and cover the texture with that. Here I have texture which I have covered
with a golden yellow paint and now, because I feel it is a little bit too
yellow, I’d like to tone it down a little bit. I have made two glazes up. One is a burnt amber and one is a burnt sienna. So let’s start off with the
burnt amber. Randomly going to use both glazes and the
key here is keep the brushes separate. And just in a random fashion, use an equal
distribution of both the glazes. So this is the burnt sienna and this is the
burnt amber. Both colors that hail
from Italy and if you have had the pleasure of going to Sienna, you’ll know
that the clay there is actually that color. So, that’s our glaze work. Then, grab
a wet rag and start manipulating the glazes into the texture. Make sure to manipulate your rag in a circular
way or left to right, up and down, just so you are actually pushing the
glaze into the texture. That to me is your classic glaze texture which
gives a lot of life to the surface without it actually being a particular

    That is a lot of work to end up with such a crappy finish.

    It looks like leather. That is awesome. It would look great in a rustic cabin.
