A video showing a quick summer Holiday project of a decorative paint finish of a wall that was previously painted in general house paint. Captured through a mobile phone of 1 hand painting and 1 hand recording, a raw impromptu footage giving you an insight of how to create this Artisan Variegated Wall finish. 

A finish like this is completely bespoke and requires little to no Preparation as it uses  our Premium Chalk Paint as a base. We've broken the steps down for you, simply just   follow the steps, recipe/ process &  you will get there... your version of a bespoke Artisan Variegated wall. 

We chose to use an old (lint free) sheet, as from experience we find it's easier to control the effects, as it's absorbent, ensure you wrinkle it up in your hand before stamping on the wall. 

Don't get caught up in detailing one area too much, keep standing back to look at your wall as whole, you can keep working at it until you are happy with the end result. Remember you are looking at a bare wall and that it will soften and settle when you place furniture back against it or when you dress it with art work, mirrors etc 

Get the paint on first and ensure full coverage followed by the gloss lacquer, don't overthink too much when doing these two steps. Where you want to slow down and the take your time is the last step when you place your lacquered mixture on for detailing. 

Note to self: The art of this finish is to be brave and free, and painting like a 4 year old brushing in all directions and letting loose and enjoying the process :-) 

With the varied sheen in the finish, the wall will reflect and bounce light therefore will adjust and react to lighting 

What we did: 
Hand painted with texture in Ocean Trench Chalk Paint using a 2 inch flat brush (3 or 4  inch if your wall is bigger) On a wall of this size we used 1x 1litre chalk paint approx 250ml gloss lacquer and 250ml Matt Lacquer a couple of tablespoons of Carbon Black Chalk Paint 
Gloss lacquer with your Staalmeester brush loading and making sure to spread it out thinly applying in a similar cross hatch style as the painting method to ensure you get into all the texture
Mix your lacquer solution with Matte Lacquer & Carbon Black, brush on and rag and stamp off with your old lint free sheet
