DIY Faux Finish: Stippling

Q: My neighbor has a faux finish in her family room that she calls “stippling.” It gives the walls a nice textured look. Her walls were done professionally, but is this something I can do myself?

 

 A: Stippling requires a special stippling brush (found at many home stores) to apply two to three accent colors to a base coat to create a mottled finish for casual or elegant looks. First apply the base coat and allow it to dry. Then apply a translucent top color by lightly pouncing the tips of the brush over the base coat. Turn the brush continually to create a random pattern with no visible square edges. A similar faux-painting technique can be done using sponges instead of a stippling brush.
