I used light layers and tried to now push to hard on the roller, or the tape tended to shift.
It is going to take forever, just keep painting!
Then when you feel like you want to quit? Keep painting…
Feel like you might go craxy because you want to rip the tape off!? Just keep painting.
I think I ended doing 4 coats. ( Allow dry time in between).
Once it is FINALLY evenly coated and dry,
peel the tape off!
I was impressed with how crisp the lines were.
A word of warning. Where you have painted will be very stiff. I knew this before I began… I chose my design so that it wouldn’t be a huge annoyance.
I have heard that you can add a “Fabric/Textile Medium” to your paint and it will help with the flexibility. I have also heard that taking a electric sander to the rug can help with the texture as well. I’m happy with mine and did not want to compromise the paint job.
I think I would consider using a primer, I seriously think it would have sped up the process considerably. Best of luck!
