Dont listen to my wife, I am the one who did all the painting originally and it was a nightmare, it was me who figured out that the thick roller will hide the marks and complete the job quickly. However, the paint is totally over priced and the "effect" is a joke. The main problem being that most of us dont have homes with six inch door casings, wainscotting, three layer crown molding, asian wall tapistry, and 18th century chippendale antique furniture to go with the nice wall colors, as seen in the brochures. My advice is to select one of the truly beautiful colors from Ralph's line and have your paint attendant match it to his cheapest wall paint. Guess what? It looks great and saves you huge dollars. Am I a genius, or what?
