Hi, this is Chris Burke, better known as Mr. Faux. Today, we're going to talk about the Tuscan wall technique. Materials you'll need are painter's tape, drywall mud, a putty knife, glazing liquid, rags and eggshell latex paint. Before you begin make sure you tape off all the edges in the room you'll be painting. This is to ensure that you have clean and perfect lines. Dip your putty knife into the mud and randomly apply the mud to the wall. Now just to be safe let it sit for a day. Once dry scrape the wall with the knife to knock off and get rid of any hard edges. Paint the wall with two coats of eggshell paint and let it dry again. The next step is to mix the paint in the glazing liquid. This will be two parts glaze to one part paint. Pour the glaze mixture into the paint tray. Now load your roller. Next apply the paint to the wall surface. Please be aware you will be working in a three by three sections. The reason you'll be working in these sections is because you do not want the glaze to dry on you before you create your effect. After the first section is painted take your rag and dab on the wall. You are doing this to remove the glaze and make a pattern. Now you have your masterpiece. This is Chris Burke better known as Mr. Faux. And today I've showed you how to do a Tuscan wall technique.
