How to Paint Wall to Look like Leather | Paint Techniques


Today we’re talking about having a leather
look texture, and this is a very traditional leather faux finish. And I’d like to point out that a faux
finish differs from, let’s say, a glazing technique because a faux finish
actually copies something in nature. So you can find granite and marble and
wood and stone, all come under the very broad groupings of faux finishes. So as I said, this is leather, and it’s called
Moroccan oxblood leather. And
it’s something that I’ve actually done on ceilings in studies and
libraries. And it really depends on what color you choose
because you can also do this in a very mottled green. You can do it in a more traditional
leather color which is the brown and more of a downy color which is the
cream. So this look is achieved by first applying
glue to your surface, whether it’s a wall or a ceiling, and then you apply tissue
paper. And this can just be
white gift wrap tissue paper which you scrunch up and apply so you get this
wonderful texture which is like old leather that is cracked up. After that
you paint it and then put a glaze over it. And there is your leather
texture.
