Paint the base color and allow it to dry completely before glazing.
To prepare your topcoat glaze color, pour 1 part PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® or PREMIUM PLUS® paint (one quart) and 4 parts FAUX GLAZE (one gallon) into a bucket and mix the contents thoroughly. For a more see-through or transparent look, add extra faux glaze to the mixture. For a denser or more opaque glaze color, add more paint to the mixture. The mixture will generally cover approximately 400 sq. ft.
Dip a quality 2"-2½" wide nylon-polyester brush into the color glaze mixture from the bucket. With your brush, paint (cut in) around the perimeter of the working surface. Start at the top corner and continue along the ceiling and around the baseboards.
Pour your color glaze mixture into a paint tray and work a 6" mini roller into the glaze until it is fully loaded. To remove excess glaze, roll the tool on the ribbed area of the paint tray.
Starting at a top corner of your project area, roll the colored glaze onto a 2' x 2' section.
While the glaze is wet, use your brush to dab or tap the colored glaze off the surface in a random motion. Work on creating a pattern of small dots. Continue until you arrive at a look you like.
Continue to work in 2' x 2' sections. Overlap and blend each section as you go to avoid hard edges.
Repeat the process until the project is complete.
