SW - Art DIR Tissue

Irregular creases and folds created in this technique provide the opportunity to add outstanding interest to any plain surface you’d like to highlight. From afar,the texture is subtle — taking on an appearance of stucco or cement. As you get closer, the unusual personality of the wall emerges as a delightful surprise.

Time Required

For an average room with 400 sq. ft. of wall space, it will take you approximately 4 – 8 total hours over 2 to 3 days.
