You will need:
1 quart of Colorhouse WATER .04 flat
1 quart of Colorhouse WOOL .06 flat
1 gallon of BISQUE .06 flat
A spray bottle
Water
Paint brush
1 roll of blue painter’s tape and paper

Step 1:
Paint your wall in 2 coats of BISQUE .06. This will be the basecoat for your Watercolor Wall. Protect your trim with painter’s tape and paper- this technique will get a little drippy at the base of the wall.
