Martha Stewart Living Paint Line Expands
Creating a faux finish on the walls of your home has never been easier with the recent expansion of the Martha Stewart Living Paint line at The Home Depot.
Three different specialty paint/glazes help the home decorator to create beautiful textures that add depth and interest to any room.
Just as velvet nap changes appearance to the touch, the lightstrokes finish reflects light differently depending on the direction in which it's brushed on. As a result, you can manipulate the finish to create the illusion of depth,, while your wall remains completely smooth.
Potter's Clay provides a medium for creating a variety of surface textures, simply by dragging the wet finish with combs or brushes. Depending on the tool you use and the thickness of the finish application, you can create well-defined lines or a finish that's looser and softer.
Precious Metals (image not available) is a decorative sheen that captures the shimmering luster of silver, gold, and other precious metals. It's particularly beautiful combined with traditional finishes in patterns and stripes, or when added to the glazes used for Martha's favorite faux-finish technique like Faux Bois.
A decorative tool kit and a line of faux finish rollers, both by Martha Stewart Living are also available at The Home Depot.
