This denim finish is on the walls of a boy’s room in Denver, CO. It is a Ralph Lauren finish and, as a result of this project, I will never use a Ralph Lauren faux product again (his tools are nice as long as you don’t have to rely on the instructions to teach you how to use them).
I know I was not the only one to struggle with this ‘denim glaze’ as the product was discontinued shortly after I completed this. The glaze was water based which means that it dried quickly. The instructions suggested doing three foot wide bands of the finish at a time and over lapping them a half an inch; thus creating ‘seams’. The picture on the packaging had none of these seams so the client was disappointed with them. She wanted entire walls painted in a single go so there were three of us, water misters in hand climbing over each other trying to paint, scratch off the glaze and keep it wet all simultaneously. It was a nightmare. In hindsight I should have given up on Ralph and remixed the color into an oil glaze but it still would have been difficult (and far more toxic).
I do love this room in spite of the headaches it gave me… I think it is a ‘success against all odds’ thing.
