I really don’t know how I missed posting this video about
Ceiling Tissue Application
until I was asked by a friend from Facebook about how to apply a tissue paper finish.
I did finalize the
but I guess I never announced that it was completed the
Ceiling Tissue Application
I did have a technical problem with my storage device and that may have been the reason why I never posted the preview.
I recorded this on site which made for some lengthy editing but there are
several tips and tricks that I show in this Tissue Application
that I know some of you have asked about, like
“How do you apply tissue to moldings and corners?”
Ceiling Tissue Applications can be tricky if you don’t have the knowledge or experience. I have had such an increase in demand for this type of finish I decided to record this tissue application on-site during the process in hopes that other artists could benefit from it. Although I’m no photographer or videographer it may be a little rough but it does give you a lot of
tips and tricks to the actual application.
Most of the tissue applications I have seen all had one thing in common that I thought makes the finish look contrived or worse yet patterned to where you would see lap lines throughout the surface the wall look like a bunch of squares and if done on a ceiling it really can look monotonous, but that’s just me and my opinion.
Some really like this kind of look and I have seen a few that did look rather well but whoever did these particular jobs had planned it well and were very aware of the problem of tissue applications and worked it to their advantage.
These are the kind of artists I love to meet because they are thinking creatively and are concerned about the end results.
I have seen tissue applications where a 9″ roller was used and while applying the paint they had twisted the roller which tears the tissue and you end up with big clumps of tissue all over the wall which to me is a disaster, but again some absolutely love it……
At any rate, regardless of what I like, I feel if a tissue application is to be done correctly it should have a consistent uniform appearance with no clumps tears or seams. There are three different techniques I use in a tissue application where the processes involve more time than the one that I show in this video and maybe one day I’ll do another How To Faux Amazing Accents DVD but at this time I am so far behind on editing a few others that I don’t have these planned as of yet.
So if you would like to see the preview to this tissue application then go to my DVD preview page and scroll on down to take a look at
As I am updating these posts it’s really amazing how brutal I was on the English language. I have corrected a lot of the grammar and spelling issues today 8/24/2020 which Google likes to see.
So as it stands now I have just lost connection for some odd reason and I’ll bet that I will lose all this updated work anyway Such as life right?
I have added a few images to the
