    Hey all! I have a client looking for me to paint segments of a wall to look like a deep blue velvet. I have been looking for products that maybe have this texture, like a velvet paint. It SEEMS like it may exist but I am not sure how to find it. Any recommendations? If something doesn’t exist, what are some of your favorite techniques to achieve this look? It is not for theater but for residential, so I have time to get it right.

      Eek that’s a bit of a new one for me. My first sample would probably involve using a “Woolie” with a stippling action with a darker and lighter version of the base. But I think that could veer pretty fast into that “90s Faux textured wall” effect.

      If you have proper ventilation I might also look into a help gun with the settings to a very fine spatter.

      I’m interested in what you do come up with, so please come back and share!

      Could you try using a Velvet like Fred Krieger Fabrics new Epic Velour 25oz or Prism Velour 22 oz. I could send you a large sample if you would like to give it a try. Email me if you would like to give it a try

        Depending on the square footage, you could flock it. I have done this a few times on smaller pieces, but could see doing it for a damask wallpaper, or similar. It’s a bit of a process, but it looks great in the end.
