Brushed suede


Mixed well, rolled on first coat (seems to cover poorly), Brushed on second coat, again covers poorly. Why not apply a color base coat with a flat paint and then the suede finish after?

Brushed suede


Don't do it! Those suede finishes get old fast. And, they put texture on the wall that is next to impossible to get rid of when you want to make a change. Most suede finishes I have used require you to BRUSH on the finish not roll it on or at least roll it on then make your "X's" with a 4" wide brush. In any event, be sure that's something you can live with for a while.
