1: Apply good quality acrylic eggshell paint of a similar color.
Two coats may be desired for drastic color changes. It is best to allow the paint to dry overnight before proceeding to
STEP 2: Using a 6” stainless steel rounded corner
flat blade or Venetian plaster trowel, load a small amount, 1 to 2 Tablespoons,
of Moiré to the outside edge of the blade. Do not overload the blade.
Using a low angle, apply a paper-thin coat of Moiré in 8” to
12” passes. Using a random pattern, apply Moiré, going up,
down and side to side. This random pattern will cause light to reflect in
a soft silk fabric-like appearance. The final step is to apply finish coat of Moiré in same fashion
as Step Two, again, a thin coat is best. Overlap small sections at a time.
ROLL-ON APPLICATION (SIMPLE)
Step 1: Apply good quality acrylic eggshell paint or
acrylic primer of a similar color. Allow to completely dry, minimum 4
Step 2: Thin Moiré with 20% Faux Like a Pro
Glaze. Blend completely, a paint squirrel, mud mixer or wire whisk works
well. Using a 4” to 6” short nap roller, apply thin layer
of Moiré. Using a consistent, random fashion, rolling passes 8”,
10”, 12”. Be sure to apply material in multiple directions
in small patches, joining sections together. There is no need to maintain
a wet edge. Use a polyester brush to work small spots, ceiling lines,
feather out brush marks. Moiré should lay down like a traditional
paint film. THIN. Allow to dry overnight.
Step 3: Repeat Step Two. Again, a thin coat is best.
Dry rolling is also a good option. A lighter shade of Moiré can
also be used for a two-tone effect. Moiré is dry to the touch in
one hour. Washable in 4 days.
Step 1: Apply good quality satin/eggshell finish acrylic
paint a shade or two darker than the desired shade of Moiré. Prepare
walls and apply a tradition paint application. Follow good painting practices
and apply one to two coats of base paint as needed. Allow paint to dry
Step 2: Thin Moiré with 20% Faux Like a Pro
Glaze, completely blend until smooth. Roll on a thin layer of thinned
Moiré using a 9” roller, 100% coverage works best. Mask ceiling
wide using 2” painter’s tape. Use a brush at ceiling and trim
lines. Do not do more than 12” to 18” wide sections at a time.
Work from base up and ceiling down. Alternate meeting points to blend
below eye level. Allow to completely dry.
Tip 1: Prevent overlapping meeting points. A kitchen rubber
spatula works GREAT for loading Moiré onto your tools/blades. Change
it UP! Use a lighter tone on Step Three as an easy two-tone! Moiré is
self-sealing and does not require a top coat. Moiré is great in dining
rooms, kitchens, bath rooms, Master suites…any room in your home! For
a spectacular touch, Moiré is beautiful on ceilings.
Tip 2: A Kitchen whisk works GREAT for thinning Moiré.
A whizz roller works EXCELLENT for this technique. The velour pink cover is
my choice. Try a roller-applied geometric pattern to add a sophisticated feel. Excellent for problematic walls and commercial applications.
Tip 3: Change it up! Try Moiré using a darker paint
tone base coat with a lighter shade Moiré topcoat. Add a hint of Iridescent
Galaxy Wax, try a metallic tone of Moiré over black paint. Options are
Tip 4: Moiré should be applied thinner than a sheet
of paper. Prevent over coating by limiting the amount of product applied to
your blade. Blades become razor sharp during application. With Moiré
there is no need to maintain a wet edge during application, simply start and
stop as needed. Work smaller sections 4’x 4’ at a time, join sections
by slightly overlapping edges of each section. This patch-work look will all
pull together with the application of the finish coat. Moiré usually
dries in less than one hour. Allow this coat of Moiré to dry completely,
1 to 4 hours depending atmospheric conditions and thickness of film.
