Lay down heavy rosin paper taped in place to protect floors.
Apply a dark orange color, Montana Agate, as a base coat on the walls. Prior to painting the walls, use an angled brush to cut in along the room edges, creating a smooth paint line. The paint has an eggshell finish; the sealer in the finish will make the second glaze coat easier to apply. A flat-finish paint will absorb the glaze.

Mix one part Moroccan red paint with two parts clear glaze. The glaze will make the paint more transparent, letting elements of the base-coat color peek through the top coat.
Next, roll off a strip of paper toweling (8-10 sheets) and fold it into a pad.
Roll the glaze over the walls in streaky sections and move around the base coat with the pad of toweling (Image 1). The textural intensity of the glaze on the wall will vary: it should be light in some areas and heavier in others, with coverage of 80 percent of the wall area when glazing is complete (Image 2).
