Faux Pearl Wall Paint Tips:

Tip 1: Mixing pearlescent wall paint glaze with Ghost Pearl or Candy powdered pearl pigments is a hot trend. Combine the pigment with clear glaze or water-based polyurethane, and use a brush to apply it over your existing latex paint. Remember, avoid rollers or sprayers for faux finish; stick to sponges, rags, brushes, or your preferred faux finish techniques.

Tip 2: One bag of Candy Pearls or Ghost Pearl pigment can treat up to a gallon of glaze or clear poly. It’s best to mix smaller quantities, about a quart at a time, to achieve the desired consistency.

Tip 3: Select a base color that complements your pearled Candy faux finish. The choice of base color is crucial. For instance, blue ghost pearl looks great over light blue or grey paint, while gold pearl complements reds, greens, oranges, or browns. Don’t hesitate to experiment with different combinations.

Tip 4: Adding a touch of pearl faux finish over white or black latex paint creates a unique custom paint effect. Our flip colors are ideal for black bases, and you’ll achieve color-changing results with multiple coats over a black base.
