Here's what you'll need for your brushed suede project:
Base Coat: A flat wall paint in the desired color
Topcoat: GranitePaint Suede
Tools: Paint trays and liners, 2" paint brush, mini roller (foam or 1/2" nap roller cover), 9" roller (foam or 1/2" nap roller cover), and frame, 4" synthetic bristle brush
Step 1: Before painting, make sure walls are clean dull and dry.
Tip: Applying a coordinating base coat color in a flat finish will aid in coverage.
Step 2: Pour Suede into a paint tray. Starting at the top corner of the wall, generously cut in 18" strips across the ceiling edge and down the corner with a brush. Texture the wet paint by rolling over it with the mini roller.
Tip: Before the first stroke, load roller with paint, then roll it off on newspaper until roller is almost dry. Priming the roller makes it ideal for texturing and won't remove the brushed-on paint.
Step 3: Using the 9" roller, apply Suede to the 18" x 18" area that has been cut in. Continue to cut in and roll 18" sections all the way down the wall, reloading the roller for each section. When the column is complete, follow with a light ceiling-to-floor sweep without reloading the roller. Repeat process across the entire wall. Allow 4 hours to dry. It is normal for the first coat to look somewhat uneven. This will be corrected with the second coat.
Step 4: Apply the second coat of Suede with a 4" synthetic bristle brush in a crisscross pattern of overlapping X's over the entire surface. Use large sweeping motions and blend to create an irregular, mottled appearance. Avoid making small, well-defined X's. When dry, your wall will have the appearance of soft, hand-brushed suede.
