That’s how the paint stays wet, giving you ample time to blend the colors. NOTE: The most common mistake is not getting enough paint on the surface, causing an uneven texture illusion or streaking of colors. ​ STEP #2 After all of the colors have been applied, use the applicator brush to spread the paint together across the surface. lightly ​ Don’t over-blend using the brush because this may cause colors to appear “muddy”. Helpful Tip ​ ​ The paint should flow easily. If spreading the splotches of color is difficult, the paint has not been applied heavily enough. Heavily applying the paint as instructed extends the drying time, which makes this process so unique and easy to do. ​ STEP #3 ​ Using a LIGHT patting/tapping motion using The Woolie to blend the paints to your desired look. ​ ​ When you reach a corner, edge or ceiling line, just brush the paint colors evenly along these areas with the brush, followed by patting/tapping with The Woolie. ​ A small amount of patting/tapping will give the raw look of marble. More blending will create a more subtle and muted appearance. ​ Make sure to blend the colors enough to avoid paint drips or any undesired texture on your walls. ​ ​ Helpful Tips ​ ​ After blending the colors using The Woolie, review the result. (While the paint is still wet) ​ At that time, if you desire the overall end result to appear lighter, apply more of the lighter color when applying the paints to the surface. ​ If you desire the overall color to be darker, apply more of the darker color(s) when applying paints to the surface. ​ You do NOT need to tap too aggressively or with excessive force because the amount of force used has . Using too much force may void The Woolie Pad warranty. no affect on the resulting appearance ​ STEP #4 If you have an area that is very small or too difficult to reach, use The Little Woolie to blend these areas. ​ Proceed by patting/tapping with The Little Woolie to create a subtle transition to the adjacent area painted with the Full-Sized Woolie. ​ ​ ​ Helpful Tips ​ ​ It very important that you apply masking tape to protect your woodwork and ceiling lines BEFORE you begin painting. ​ Always blend edges, corners and ceiling lines at the same time you are blending the main sections.

Unlike traditional brushes, The Woolie paint tool enhances your ability to keep steady while making your passes on a wall. 1-2-3-Faux! Instruction Steps ​ Using The Woolie Original Faux Painting Pad ​ If you have never faux finished with The Woolie Faux Painting Tools and Techniques, view our detailed step-by-step instruction videos to ensure your delight and success. ​ ​ STEP #1 Carefully review our Preparation Instructions before you begin. You will find them further down on this page. ​ ​ If you have never faux finished with The Woolie Faux Painting Tools and Techniques, view our detailed step-by-step instruction videos to ensure your delight and success.​ ​ This Technique is easiest to do with two people. ​ Person #1 will apply the faux finish glaze using a roller and a brush near edges. ​ ​ ​ ​ Helpful Tips ​ You must use 2 highly-contrasting wall paint colors. ​ These colors must be AT LEAST 4 shades apart. ​ Refer to our How to choose color combinations for this technique. This can be found further down on this page. ​ STEP #2 Person #2 will create the look by dragging through the faux glaze using The Woolie. ​ Person #1 will continue to apply the faux glaze color uniformly. This person should be aware of the pace of the other person who is blending the final look and adjust accordingly. Moving ahead too fast may cause the faux glaze to dry before it is blended. ​​ ​ ​ Person #2 should always leave a small strip of wet unblended glaze between your area and the area where the glaze is being applied. This will avoid overlap lines between sections. ​ ​ ​ IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not reapply glaze once your blended area begins to dry. This will create an undesirable effect. ​ STEP #3 When you approach an edge, corner or ceiling line. (That has been protected by masking tape prior to painting) ​​ ​ Spread the glaze along the edges of the masking tape using a small paint brush to ensure consistent results. If you reach an area that is too small for The Full-Size Woolie to fit, Use The Little Woolie to drag through the faux glaze. ​ Helpful Tips ​ ​ It very important that you apply masking tape to protect your woodwork and ceiling lines BEFORE you begin painting. ​ Refer to the Room Preparation Instructions. This can be found further down on this page. ​ Always blend edges, corners and ceiling lines at the same time you are using the roller. Do NOT wait to do this until the end to blend these areas. ​ STEP #4 After each dragging pass, The Woolie will collect glaze from the surface. ​ ​ Download excess glaze from The Woolie.​ This is done by dabbing with paper towels or lint-free rags. ​ ​ If you feel that The Woolie is getting overly-saturated too frequently, this may indicate that too much glaze has been applied to the surface prior to dragging. Person #1 should adjust the application of glaze accordingly. This Next Section Provides Additional Resources and Helpful Information For This Faux Painting Technique ​ Type of Paint | Faux Glaze If you have never faux finished with The Woolie, view our detailed step-by-step instruction videos to ensure your delight and success. This faux painting technique requires the use of faux finish glaze. What is a faux finish glaze? ​ Glaze is simply a thin, translucent film of color that is applied over a base coat of a satin finish painted surface. Glaze creates a rich, dimension in many faux and decorative paint techniques. ​ What does faux finish glaze do? ​ Paint normally dries very quickly. Faux glaze slows down the drying time of paint which gives you more time to manipulate your color to create the look you want. It also makes paint colors translucent to enable you to create the look of depth and texture illusion. ​ What Kind of Glaze? ​ Water-based glazes and paints are the easiest to work with and to clean up. ​ You can buy glazes that are already tinted, or you can mix up your own custom glaze color. ​ ​ How do I mix my own glaze? Mix Faux Glaze (clear colorless) with your chosen paint color. ​ Combine clear (no color) faux glazing medium with your paint (either latex or acrylic). Generally the ratio is four parts glaze to one part paint, but you should follow the manufacturer's instructions. ​ Test your glaze mixture on a scrap board or poster board to make sure it's the right consistency and translucency. ​ Due to their nature, latex glazes can be customized to suit your needs. ​ The amount of glazing medium you add to the paint can affect the color of the glaze. When you're using lighter paint colors, a 4-to-1 mixture will not affect the value of the color. ​ But darker colors may be altered to a lighter color value when mixed with too much glaze. It's always best to experiment with the color on a piece of poster board. ​ The translucency of the glaze is determined by how much paint you add: more paint than glaze results in less translucency; less paint than glaze results in more translucency. ​ The more clear glaze that is added the longer that your glaze mixture will stay wet. ​ The more paint that is added the sooner that your glaze mixture will dry. ​ ​ Choose Your Colors Color Ideas and Samples ​ ​ ​ The Woolie Painting Techniques Color Combination Samples | Ideas | Examples | Inspiration | ​ ​ The fact is that it's really very difficult to visualize paint color combinations.
