Paint Technique: Stipple Painting Technique For Walls
Primary Paint Tool: The Woolie Original Sheepskin Pad
Stippling / Stipple faux painting technique is one of the oldest methods used to paint walls. This method of decorative painting results in appearance as one of the most subtle texture illusion. Often referred to as "Antiqued Leather".
Traditionally over centuries, this technique used to be created using a "Stipple Brush" or a "Block Brush", that was heavy and difficult to use. Over the last few decades professionals and beginners have found that using The Woolie sheepskin pad is simply easier and gives more consistent results.
Before You Begin:
Person 1 should roll the faux glaze onto the surface using a paint roller.
Person number 2 should tap the glaze with The Woolie sheepskin tool to blend and unify the glaze to get a consistent, professional look. (NOTE): Both people should work closely in proximity to avoid premature drying of the wet glaze.
As you tap with The Woolie, you will need to tap-off excess glaze onto a Rag or paper towel to avoid over-saturation of The Woolie tool.
Use The Woolie to blend your faux finish into all of your wall edges. If you have small or hard to reach areas, you may need to use The Little Woolie or The MINI Woolie as well.
Blend your faux finish into all of your wall edges and corners as you continue the wall. (NOTE): Complete all areas as you proceed, It is not possible to adjust areas later.
