Step 7

Gazette Gallery

If you discover cracks in your paperclay the next morning, don’t despair! In fact, the cracks may be just perfect for the aged look! If the cracks aren’t deep, leave them as they are, especially in corners or under the windows. If the cracks are large enough to see the wall thru them, simply dip your fingers in water and moisten the crack and the area around it. Knead a small amount of paperclay between your fingers and ‘patch’ the crack. Dip your fingers in water again and smooth the patch around the edges. Allow to dry overnight.

Before we paint the walls, we want to cover the floor and ceiling to protect them from paint. Use waxed paper and masking tape to cover both completely.

We’re going to be giving the walls the same distressing technique as the ceiling. Mix your paint as you did for the ceiling and paint the paperclay uniformly. (I mixed a little Greenleaf stucco into the paint for some additional texturing) Allow the paint to dry.
