|"Tobacco Leather" bagged glaze|
|Mask everything. Use 2" wide tape, tan on popcorn ceilings and woodwork, blue on delicate painted surfaces. Put down drop cloths, fill a bucket of water and round up a few rags to keep handy.|
|If you put your switch plates back on right away, wait a few days to tighten the screws, to keep them from sticking to the glaze.|
One is to not try to go around inside corners. It almost always looks better to work on side walls, then come back to dry edges, mask the corner with blue tape, and do end walls.
If you have someone work with you, have them wipe with the damp rag and roll on the paint just ahead of you, so you can just keep working the bag.
You will need to wipe excess glaze off of the bag fairly often, so have a few rags handy for this.
Don't let paint start to dry on the bag, or you will get little paint boogers stuck in the next part you pat it onto.
If paint gets on your textured ceiling, it usually is best to let it just barely dry and pick it off with a fingernail, rather than trying to wipe it off wet, whicn almost never works.
Start in the least visible spot in the room, and finally, if your first attempt is going badly, wipe it off quickly, take a break, tweak your glaze if you think it might need to be a bit thinner or thicker, and start again.
City loft or country cabin, formal dining room or cowpoke's nursery (or just in a typical suburban master bedroom), leather is always stylish. Try it!
