2. Press a quick release tape, 2" or more in thickness, under or over to your marks - its easiest if you paint over them - and press it onto the wall firmly.
3. Working in 4 foot square areas, apply a mixture of paint and glaze (equal parts of each) using a roller. This will enable a longer drying time to allow you to work the entire wall and add a bit of luminosity to the stripe.
4. With a stippling brush, pounce the paint/glaze stripe, creating a softened look.
5. While the glaze is still tacky, remove your tape.
The end result is a softened, almost suede-like effect.
