Step 1: Prep the Room and Apply the Base Coat
Prep room by taping windows, doors and moldings with painter’s tape. Place drop cloth on the floor.

Apply latex eggshell base coat in the same color family as top coat.

Step 2: Mix and Apply the Glazes
Mix 3 different top coat glazes: Mix one part latex eggshell paint with 3 parts glaze, then mix the latex-glaze mixture with ¼ part metallic glaze and ½ part water.

Apply glazes generously in a random pattern, using a small roller in sections (Image 1).

Before glazes dry, blend them with a sea sponge (Image 2).

Step 3: Apply a Top Coat Glaze
After wall dries, apply a small amount of bronze metallic glaze to sea sponge and rub over wall.

Top coat glazes used in this demonstration:

Sari Suit (KM3534-2) latex eggshell paint with metallic glaze in gold. Mix latex-glaze mixture with glazing liquid and water.

Sari Supreme Bean (KM4030-2) latex eggshell paint with metallic glaze in bronze. Mix latex-glaze mixture with glazing liquid and water.
