What Is Textured Paint?
Textured paint is exactly what it sounds like—it is paint with a texture that creates a 3D effect when applied. Commonly used on ceilings and walls, textured paint comes in many different patterns such as swirls, bubbly textures, stippled patterns and more. The most popular types of textured paint are acrylic or latex emulsion paints. These types of paints have an even consistency when applied to surfaces and provide excellent coverage with minimal effort.
How Does It Work?
Textured paint is made with an additive mixed into the paint while it is still wet. The additive helps create a thicker consistency which allows the painter to achieve unique textures with ease. Once the textured paint has been applied to the surface it will need time to dry thoroughly before any additional layers can be added. Applying too many layers of textured paint may cause cracking or peeling over time so always make sure to apply thin coats for best results.
Special Effects Paint
Special effects paint is also made from acrylic or latex emulsion but they come in more adventurous colors that can add depth and texture to any project. These paints can be used on both walls and ceilings but they are most commonly used for accent walls or decorative pieces like furniture or cabinets. Special effects paints use reflective pigments which help create interesting color variations depending on how much light is available in the room where it’s being used. Popular special effects include metallic finishes, pearlescent finishes, crackle finishes, stone finishes and more!
