How to Apply a Tuscan Plaster Wall Treatment

    Hi, Laura, My sister is an artist and does these types of techniques. I have found your site because I want to put a Tuscan plaster wall treatment tinted with paint on cinderblock walls in the basement bedroom that I am moving into. What would you recommend? My sister lives in Dallas and she suggested this technique to me. I do want to add color to the joint compound. Do you have any tips? If you have time of course.!! Your pins are wonderful and your boards. Thank you

    Hi Diane! You can pre-tint the joint compound using Pigment Tints (available online or at home improvement stores) or use some type of Pure Pigment Dye (such as Rit Fabric Dye available at Walmart/Grocery stores). If you don't want to pre-tint, you can just paint it with wall or craft paint after it dries (allow 24 hours for the j.compound to cure). If you pre-tint, keep in mind that it will dry quite a bit lighter than it looks when it is wet. So you may want to experiment with the color a bit on some sample boards before you start on the wall. Hope this helps. Good luck with your project! :)

    Laura, I thank you for your response to me. I have discovered that putting paint into the joint compound is Not working for me:)) So I will do it right! You have given me the knowledge I need! And I thank you and appreciate your time. Many blessings to you, Laura. I love all of your boards and your great great talent and gift!
