Suede Paint Over Latex?

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I have a wall pre-painted in latex. Can I do the final criss-cross pattern with the suede paint over the latex, or must I first cover the entire wall with the suede paint?

It depends on your base color. Go ahead and apply a coat, following the directions on the can. It is possible you might need another coat.

You will have to paint the walls with the suede first in order to get the true suede look then do the criss-cross pattern only brushing in one direction. Don't back brush when doing your criss-cross.
