HOW TO DO A "SAND SWIRL TEXTURE"   PAGE 2 OF 2

 

Step 2: Start Swirling 1st Row

The trick with swirls is that every row of swirls covers up the bottom of the last row. So what your doing is making big loops with the bottoms open. When you come through on the next row, the top of the new row of swirls will cover up the bottom of the last row of swirls.

Always start at the very top of the wall. If your doing a ceiling start on 1 end.

Your swirl design is up to you. You can go really slow and try to make perfect circles. Or you can go crazy fast and make a abstract funky creation.

  

 

After every swirl, re-dip the brush (Load it up) before the next swirl

  

 

Work your way down the 1st row

   

 

 I'm using a chunk of sheetrock here so my rows are only about 5 feet long. Even if you are doing a long wall try to only do about as much as I'm doing.(4 or 5 foot sections from ceiling to floor)

This way the paint is still nice and wet as you work your way down the wall. If your rows are too long. The paint will start setting up before you get to the next row.

 

Step 3: Start Swirling 2nd Row

 

Start your 2nd row. See how your looping over the bottoms of the 1st row ?

One dip per swirl. When you finish the 2nd row, move on to the 3rd. Just keep working your way all the way down to the floor.

When you get your 1st section complete, move down start another until you finish your project.
