How to Glaze a Textured Wall
Glazing a textured wall adds depth and interest to walls. Mixing paint with paint or stain with a glaze creates a translucent product used in glazing. Ideally, the finish of the paint or stain should have an eggshell finish, not a flat finish. Mixing the glaze with a paint color that is either darker or lighter than the wall color emphasizes the ridges in the wall texture.
- Mix four to six parts glaze to one part paint.
- Brush the glaze onto the wall in a small section, less than 1 foot square in size. Have one person brush on the glaze while another follows behind to do the next step.
- Rub some of the glaze into the crevices and off of the raised areas with a rag.
- Continue until you've covered the wall.
