The Way to Add Texture

Whether you are redecorating an current home or decorating a new home, as you decorate walls with colour, don’t forget about adding texture to walls as well. While colour can create walls pop with attention, texture can provide a subtle background to the colour that enhances and beautifies. Add texture to a wall by using several procedures. After incorporating the texture, add colour also and also the finished effect guarantees to be a wall that will grab attention and create your space exude style.

Protect woodwork, window frames and door frames by applying masking tape along these borders to stop paint and texture products from staining these adjoining surfaces. Cover the floor with the tarps.

Before applying the texture, prime the wall surface first. Pour the primer to the paint and use it using the paint roller. Allow the primer to dry completely before you proceed.

Mix the drywall joint compound which has a little bit of water in the skillet to thin it slightly. Add a little bit of water gradually until you get the consistency you need in order to produce the texture you want. Mix enough compound to cover the entire wall.

Apply the thinned drywall joint compound into the wall at a 1/8-inch-thick coating, working in small 2-foot segments to employ and texturize. Use the joint compound using a paint roller and then use a tool to make textures or designs in the wet compound. As an instance, use a large comb to make lines or use a whiskbroom to make thatching.

Continue working in tiny sections until you use the texture to the entire wall. Allow the joint compound to dry completely on the wall until you paint over it (at least 24 hours).
