Make sure you read the can label! DS is not meant to be a general wall covering paint. It is for highlight, faux finishing, or as a base for the crackle technique. While I have had some customers with good results on rough plaster walls with DS in the gold or silver colors, most have terrible results, especially with oyster colors. Just for reference, I am a paint specialist at The Home Depot and hopefully, any store you go to will try to "Qualify" you and your project needs first before sending you home with something that will disappoint you.
