Learn how to create this elegant and sophisticated wall finish for any room in your house in 3 easy steps.    

You’re going to be shocked at how easy and inexpensive this wall finish is to create.

I also want to thank Gerri Lewis Mooney for naming this wall finish on my Facebook page.  The name of this finish is Capizo.

In Gerri’s words: “Capizo“ shells is what this luxe wall design reminds me of. 😲 it’s Stunning!

Capiz shells are shells that are found in a province in the Philippines called Capiz. A capiz shell, which is found on the coastal waters, is the outer shell of a marine mollusk.

Step #1:

Crinkle up the tissue paper in a ball.  You can get this at the Dollar Tree or any department store. It’s the same paper you wrap your Christmas gifts with.

 

Step #2

Apply wallpaper paste to the wall. Full coverage but not thick.

 

Step #3

Use a large soft brush to lightly apply the tissue paper to the wall. Apply in a crisscross fashion

If you want to cover the switch plates spray some primer on them first so the paper sticks. I just go right over it when it’s on the wall.

If you don’t want to cover the switch plates, then tape them off. You can use a utility knife when you’re done to remove the tape.

Apply two coats (eggshell or satin) paint on wall. Let dry overnight.

Use a car sponge to apply the metallic paint.

You can use any color you wish. I used Pearl for this wall.

Here’s is the finished room.  It’s difficult to see the true beauty of this finish in this picture. Look at the one below in gold.
