I recently painted one wall with the RL suede paint. I used the suggested technique (painted X)as well as the RL stupid roller. All I can say is that if the finished product is supposed to look like crap splattered on a wall, then I guess I achieved the desired look!!! I also tried rerolling it in the X formation. The look ---CRAP!!!. $70 wasted, I brought the RL product back to the store, got my money back, bought a similar color in another brand--and repainted the room. NOW my room looks fabulous!!NO THANKS TO RALPH LAUREN. He should stick to designing CLOTHES NOT PAINT, something he doesn't do that well either.
