Since I have been encouraging others to post some how-to's (ok bugging them!), I thought I better step up and do the same. The problem is I really am not very good or consistent about taking photos of my work. The only reason I have the photos included here, is because I was experimenting with so many different products and combinations that I had to record some of it or I would never remember what I did. And then I forgot to take photos of the raised design stage!
Hopefully if anyone is even interested in reproducing this finish, you can understand my instructions. If you need help give me shout and I will help you out.

|While Smooth Absorbent is still wet (stays wet a long time) I used a squeegee to lightly drag through horizontally. I used choppy movement as I was dragging.|

Kathy, I love this finish and think it would look fantastic on a backsplash without the stencil... Stencil is nice but the finish is just amazing! love the texture and colors!ReplyDelete
