Shiny Purple Faux Finish Effect "Spatula" on My Bedroom Accent Wall
by Kamela Ahmedi
This is a picture of my bedroom. I am a 19yr old girl. I am inclined towards creativity. Therefore I now have a wall in my room that reflects my experimental and creative and fun nature.
I chose only one large wall for this paint effect. The main idea behind this project was to have a change of look and feel in this personal space.
I chose this color because it gave the boldness and the warmth that I wanted to change the mood of this room.
The effect of the beautiful wine purple wall contrasts nicely with the other walls of my room which are covered in a cream wallpaper.
We approached Asian Paints for this project. They did a marvelous job. We selected the 'Spatula Effect' application technique. The color used in the base coat was 'Electric pink' and the top coat included 'Purple Prose'. This combination of subtle contrast brought about just the right shades of purple I wanted.
The spatula effect gives an uneven look that goes best with a warm color palette. It has the feel of bold strokes that accentuates the living space.
The top coat is a specially formulated glaze that is easy to apply and retains the pattern left by the tool that created it. However, speed during the job is important as the top coat starts to dry within minutes of application.
This special effect paint added dimension, visual depth, and drama to my bedroom in an easy and cost effective way.
The project was done in a very professional and time efficient manner. It was done within two days and had the desired effect.
