This living room has a base color of Benjamin Moor Aura, #350. The glaze colors are #355 and #370.

The original walls are textured plaster so I just painted this finish on using Benjamin Moore water based glaze mixed with the paint colors.

I usually mix about half glaze and half paint and it only takes about a quart of mixed glaze to do an entire room.

The glaze is applied with brushes and sponges in 2 separate layers.

I always use 3-M blue tape for all of the edges and I use a brush to get the glaze into the corners.
