Step 1

Now let’s get started..

Give walls a light sand & wipe away dust with a damp rag.

Cut in your edges using the base color “Tangerine Zing” with a paint brush. Refer to my video  “How to Paint a Wall”

Step 2

Using a 7″ Roller, roll out the base color onto the wall. Allow to dry completely and apply a second coat if needed. Allow to dry over night.

Step 3

Use a measuring tape to measure out the height of your wall, divide into 5 equal parts marking your points

Step 4

With a white charcoal stick (or pencil) and a level, draw out your 4 horizontal lines

Step 5

Using Scotch-Blue painter’s tape, tape off every other stripe.

It should look like this

Step 6

Using the Copper Metallic Glaze, brush in the corners that are hard to reach with the roller

Allow 1-2 hours in between coats.

Using the mini-roller, roll on the Copper Metallic in a V-pattern. (Don’t worry that it is not covering completely, it will cover better with the second coat)

Step 7

Gently remove the Painter’s Tape while the Paint is still wet.

If there’s any bleeding edges, simply touch it up using a little of the base color.

WOW!

You now have a Stunning new feature wall.
