Design brief: Interior sunroom in a 

Pennsylvania home, looking out over the mountains and lake. 


Wall texture: A thin scenic dope and paint mixed was spread across the walls. Half way through dry time, water was sprayed on, and then rolled with a sponge roller to pucker the texture. Finally, sponging was added in areas for highlight and shadow. 


Beams: Hogs trough cover in pink and blue foam. Dry brushing technique with acetone for a bark texture. Doping to prime the surface and wet blended. 


Stone Wall: 1” pink foam green glue to flats. Using a heat knife, the stone mortar was cut out. Stippling the stones with acetone, and water, erosion occurred. Rounded edges with a heat gun and rasp. Doping over the foam to prime for paint. 


Floor treatment: 4 color wet blend with a satin glaze. 


Ground Row: Cartooned out from designer rendering. Initial color was scumbled in, and layered up through sponging with highlight and shadow to give depth.
