    Let the primer dry completely. This step-by-step tutorial provides photos and tips for achieving a high-end look with just a few careful strokes of paint. We realize some people learn better by reading while other people learn better by watching. I have even eliminated the requirement for some of the expensive tools that others recommend. Plan out your design — do you want vertical or horizontal stripes?

    This will determine the width of each diamond. Remove the stencil when paint is still wet, and attach it to the next spot, using a level if necessary to keep things squared up. That's why I was so excited to read this book from Decorative-Faux-Painting. It has a deep luster and offers the shimmering effect of having metal in the finish. Let the primer dry completely. With your download, you will receive a bonus that could prove essential to your success.

    Behr's Venetian plaster is applied with a putty knife. Using an up-down or, rather, in-out for a wall motion, apply your paint with a stenciling brush. Oh, and just in case that's not scary enough, you must then blend two colors over the whole wall on top of the crackle medium using a process that's consistent, but does not spoil the effect. Rag Rolling: Achieve the rich look of old leather or weathered stucco with rag rolling.

The first application goes onto the walls with a standard roller. To create vertical stripes, use a ruler, yardstick, or measuring tape, and a pencil to measure and mark even intervals along the top edge of the wall. Multiply that number by two to determine the diamond height.
