    I was asked to do this Tikkurila Taika Pearl Paint effect in a relatives bedroom. Colour is TVT 2098.
    Good job it was for a relative because I have never used this paint before.

    All I did was apply it with a 6” mini roller in roughly m2 sections and criss-cross any old how with a 3” brush.
    Totally blagged it and from the road, it looks a good’un :thumbsup:

    Name of the game with this one, don’t be afraid of rolling it on thicker than an emulsion.
    It needs it to maintain a wet edge.

    It's only in a little box room, so not much scope for a photo without a fish eye lens. So sorry about photo.

    Mark’s out of ten folks :biggrin:

    Looks great! Crown used to do something similar, forget what it was called?

    Cheers, Ali. It's called "The hand has gone to sleep and trying to shake it Out" effect :hysterical:

    I thank you sir.
    I seem to remember Crown doing it to now you've mentioned it.

    I did a feature wall with this a long while back and used the suede effect, you could only apply it with a brush and the effect was chit the finish was like 80grit abrasive stuck on the wall in a colour.

    It's definitely different @mistcoat. I don't mind it to be honest and to be fair, it looks better than your normal finish. :biggrin:

    Remember being shown the same technique years ago but can't remember what paint it was. Lime paint :dunno: ? Cross hatching as you go in squares.
