Colour artists, creatives and DIY'ers watch out! - Here today you will learn 4 great techniques for designing paintable wallpaper.
If you take a look at our category "paintable wallpapers", you will find page after page of white non-woven wallpapers of various designs and surface structures with a special trick:
The ingrain wallpapers from Erfurt are one of the most popular brand wallpapers in Germany because of their outstanding quality.
With the collection "Meister Vlies 6" A.S. Création offers you XL non-woven wallpapers with a special size of 250 x 106 cm with which you can quickly transform large areas into a play of colours.
And in the "Wallton" collection by Rasch, you will find more than 150 designs with different surfaces that create colour variations even when painted once: embossing casts shadows, special granules reproduce the colour darker or raised and foamed surface structures play with the light. Thus, many designs of the "Wallton" simply create a fascinating 3D look.
In addition, you can give your chosen paintable wallpaper your personal touch with the following techniques:
With the sponge technique paintable wallpapers beautify
You need: A painter's sponge.
After applying the fresh paint, dab the still damp wall with the sponge. This will allow you to reabsorb paint and create a beautiful cloud-like effect.
Alternatively you can work with two different colours. Use the sponge to apply a darker top coat after applying a light base colour.
Individualize paintable wallpapers with the wrapping technique
You need: A cloth (e.g. chamois leather) and gloves.
Soak the cloth in paint, wring it out and leave it in a crumpled form. Now you can simply roll the cloth gently over the wall and a rustic effect will be created, which will become more intense depending on the amount of paint, pressure and number of applications.
Wiping technique with brush for paintable wallpaper
You need: A simple brush or a clean broom head.
After you have primed the wall in your desired colour, dip the brush slightly in another colour and by repeated wiping movements on the wall, you create a rough texture effect.
The stencil technique for wallpaper that can be painted over
You need: Cardboard, a cutter knife and a brush. With this technique there are really no limits to your creativity.
Cut out different motifs (e.g. small stars) from the cardboard with the help of a cutter knife, hold the template in front of the wall and fill the gaps with paint.
Dare to experiment, because as Bob Ross said: "We don't make mistakes here, we just have happy accidents".
Of course, these techniques can be combined with each other and other variations.
For all variations, we recommend using emulsion, latex or acrylic paint.
