Create a wavy striped wall
Paint wavy metallic bands on a wall using masking tape and glaze.
To create the effect of wavy metallic bands on a feature a wall, overlapping layers of glaze in three colours were applied to a base coat of light blue.
To make the glazes, mix acrylic metallic paints with an extender.
Thin a dark blue colour with three parts extender, white with two parts and copper with one part to get the same effect as on this wall.
Or you can pick colours to create a scheme that suits the base colour of the wall and your interior decorating.
This wall was masked off with strips of tape that were torn down the middle to create a wavy edge, in a pattern that repeats every 300mm.
Glaze was applied to areas between the strips of tape using a sponge.
We used 50mm wide painter’s tape, choosing it over masking tape. The tearing characteristics are similar but painter’s tape has better paint blocking capabilities for cleaner edges.
TIP You’ll need three rolls of tape for a three metre wide wall.
