Hi, this is Chris Burke, better known as Mr. Faux. Today we're going to talk about how to texturize walls when painting. Materials you'll need are painter's tape, drywall mud, a putty knife, and eggshell latex paint. Before you begin make sure you tape off all the edges in the room you will be painting in. This is to ensure you will have clean and perfect lines. Dip your putty knife into the mud and randomly apply mud to the wall. Now just to be safe let it sit for a day. Once dry scrape the walls with the knife to knock off and get rid of any hard edges that might have formed. Paint the walls with two coats of eggshell paint. Now you have your masterpiece. This is Chris Burke, better known as Mr. Faux. And today I showed you how to texturize walls when painting.
