Paint TechniquesPosted by in Home and Decorating
I am a big fan of paint techniques. Martha has a feature on them in the May issue of Martha Stewart Living and she also demonstrated some on her tv show recently. I absolutely am desperate to try the “raw-silk wall” treatment. The problem is finding a room to do it in! I already have several paint techniques throughout the house.
This is the first paint technique I tried. It’s sponge-painted. It looks very yellow in this photo, but it is more subtle in person.
This is Venetian plaster – and it almost caused us both to be committed. It was a LOT of work. We did this in our entryway, up the stairs and in the upstairs hall. I actually love the way the color turned out, but we did a really crappy job on the corners.
This is in our bedroom. I used a rag for both the top and bottom. On the bottom, I first tried to use a whisk broom,but couldn’t get the look I wanted. I wanted the room to look like a meadow – with tall grass on the bottom and blue sky above.
