If you're thinking of painting a room, why not consider a different paint technique. It adds a lot of character and charm to a room. Stippling is an easy technique and the results are amazing. Here's how it's done. There are actually two ways you can do this; you can stipple off, which means you remove part of a second coat of paint or glaze, or stipple on by dabbing a second color onto the wall.

Tape off all baseboards, moldings and anything else you don't want painted, this project can get a little messy.

Paint the walls a base color and allow it to dry thoroughly. It's best to use a light color for the base.

Choose a top color that is close to the base color, this slight variation will give you a subtle textured effect. Pour a little into a paint pan.

Using a stippling brush, dab the ends into the paint. Blot the brush on some paper towels. You don't want a lot of paint on the brush because you want to see the brush strokes.

Apply the paint onto the wall in a random in and out motion, as if you were using a hammer. Work in small three to four foot sections around the room. Make sure that you wipe the brush frequently, so you get a nice even pattern.
