A unique feature of this product is that you can obtain different looks and textures by varying the spray style. For a finer texture, hold the can upright 12-14 inches from the surface, spray in a steady back and forth motion. For a larger texture, hold the can upright 10-12 inches from the surface and spray in a slow but steady back and forth motion. The wet look will appear shiny once applied to the surface. Apply 3-5 coats. The more coats applied, the more the effect will show.
