> Ralph Lauren Paint Help by Handyman on 10/27/2004

I am so sorry you had so much trouble with the Ralph Lauren River Rock paint. I used the blue and the desert color for a four hundred square foot family room and love it! I will tell you however to use the tools Home Depot says you need is ridiculous. I achieved a great look by doing the following: dont use a base coat or fancy rollers, apply by brush first(a large one) any brush will do and then roll over it with a textured roller before it dries. I noticed large patches of irregularity but touching up will work with a paint brush and or roller. It is hard work but worth it. I used the first coat of the antique leather look in green in another room and was so pleased with that I didnt add the second color or age it to look like leather. Experimienting with different tools and colors with and without bases or topcoats worked for me. Good luck, I personally like the river rock effect as does every person who comes in our home. It is not easy to apply though so be prepared for toiling!
