Proceed Low Absorbency Base Paint (LABP) Pastel Base tinted to Hemlock, Cracking Size (CS), Smooth Cracking Texture (SCT), Full Bodied Glaze (FBG), Phthalo Green and Carbon Black Slow Dry Fluid Acrylics (SDFA), Phthalo Blue, Phthalo Green, Raw Umber and Carbon Black Dispersions (DISP).


Roller and pan for base paint, roller for Size, Wallovers "Textile" Stencil, Stencil Spray Adhesive (we like Martha Stewart's), Trowel or Japan Scraper, brush or roller for glaze, rags.

Tint: 1 quart of LABP Pastel Base to "Hemlock": 1/2 tsp. Phthalo Blue, 2 3/4 tsp Phthalo Green, 2 tsp Raw Umber and 3/4 tsp Carbon Black DISP. Tint: 1 quart of FBG with 1/2 oz of Phthalo Green 1/2 oz Carbon Black SDFA to make "Aged Green".

Step 1: Base paint the surface using 2 coats of LABP tinted "Hemlock".

Step 2: Roll 1 coat of CS, allow it to get tacky about 1-2 hours.

Step 3: Apply random stencils to the surface, allowing about 3 feet diagonally between stencils. Using a trowel apply the SCT through each stencil varying the application from thin to medium thick. Remove the stencils immediately. Using a trowel apply the SCT around and slightly into the stencil image, "burying" some parts of it. Move along the wall connecting the stencils with the material. Do a small section at a time keeping a wet edge. Do not force dry the SCT or any of the Proceed cracking textures! Allow to dry thoroughly, at least overnight.

Step 4: Apply the "Aged Green" FBG with a brush or roller, rag off with a clean lint free rag.
