After you've finished each section, you can soften the look by using a clean, dry softening brush and lightly brushing the tips of the brush over the damp surface. Keep the brushstrokes in the same direction as the streaks.
For a longer open working time use Valspar® Untra Interior Semi-Gloss Enamel. This will extend the workability of the glaze and will also result in a higher overall sheen level of the faux finish.
Valspar Signature Tintable Glaze is ideal for rewetting a partly dry edge. The clear mixing glaze will rewet the dry glaze, allowing you to
continue your technique.
For larger surfaces, you will find that you can work more quickly by using a wall weaver brush for dragging. Follow the same technique, but replace the dragging brush with a wall weaver brush (See photo above). You will still want to use the dragging brush for corners and other tight areas.
Choose from our premixed colors or have your glaze color custom tinted at the paint counter. Try your technique on a practice board before you try it on the walls.
For a simple transformation or quick update, this technique is easy to paint over. No sanding or stripping of the underlying faux finish is needed. Just apply a topcoat of paint and you're finished!
