pretty cool video, not what I was looking for originally (you can add brocade texture to paintings, most of them were modeled though, to look like leaf/organic forms, it goes back to the 12th century that it was used), but really interesting and well made none the less! :)

Humberto Corrales (1 year ago)
How much time are you taking to test it before flatting it? 20min? 10? Thanks, good video
seejanedrill (1 year ago)
Hi Humberto, it really depends upon the conditions in your room...the humidity, temperature, etc. It is difficult to give a time estimate.
Jose Antonio Sanchez (1 year ago)
Is it ok if the wall I'm gonna do this to has a satin sheen to it?
seejanedrill (1 year ago)
Yes, because there is an adhesive in the joint compound.
Michael DeModena (1 year ago)

Raul Cornejo (1 year ago)
I was wondering how long you waited to knockdown the texture? 5-10 minutes?
seejanedrill (1 year ago)
Hi Raul, I can't give a definite time, because the circumstances, humidity in the air, temperature, etc. play a major role.

No sanding involved.

Twitch' N Clips (1 year ago)
Is this possible to be done with only one hawk? If so how? Thanks
Brandon Garmon (1 year ago)
I found this video to be highly helpful, I think you did a great job explaining how in great detail. I would like to ask, what is the best type of paint, to go on this type of texture.
BackToConstitution (1 year ago)
Absolutely beautiful work! Thumbs up! Jane really understands art! The work she does is art! Thank you for imparting your wisdom on us! Because of you, homes are more beautiful!
thanks for this video, I have ceilings done like this by the contractor, and I'd like to paint them, I wonder if you have a video or tips on that. I don't know for certain if it was painted when they did the original, but its been about 18 yrs and its yellow now. So I'd like to freshen it up. Any tips would be appreciated! thanks for this video.
Thank you...I will check that out and try it on a small room first!
seejanedrill (1 year ago)
Hi Catherine, they now make a ceiling paint and primer in one. There is one made by Zinsser that is very highly rated. I would suggest using that.
Ash SA (1 year ago)
Thanks for this helpful video, I appreciate it. I was just wondering whether I could use tile adhesive instead of joint compound?
seejanedrill (1 year ago)
I'm wondering, why would you want to do that? Tile adhesive is expensive.

I'm a novice and am wondering if you start out with a wall that has been taped and sanded and ready for a topcoat or do you need the topcoat on the entire wall first? Thank you.
seejanedrill (1 year ago)
No topcoat needed.
J Mead (1 year ago)
How do you apply this design to inside corners?

Amelia Hidalgo (1 year ago)
Thanks for the great and easy to follow detail.  I have been trying to do it and came close.  Your hints about keeping the tools wet made a big difference. How about a video on how to fix an area in the brocade?  I had to replace a small area  (1' x 1') of drywall so how do I make the patch blend in without it looking like a blob?

Leah You're Fantastic. SO here's what I love about you. You're able to take something, learn the right and best way, add your little twist to make it you ( even better) and then teach it to the masses. I've learned a bunch from you. You have a special gift, please always continue to develop it and help others. Like you do! (me too)

Can you smooth out a brocade wall with warm water? My goal is to smooth out my walls without putting up new walls. Thanks
Ms. Lady Key (1 year ago)
seejanedrill Thank you
seejanedrill (1 year ago)
First of all, it would have to be joint compound, and joint compound that has never been painted. And even then, it would be a challenge. But it could be done.

Just found your videos. Subscribed. Sure could have used your info when we were renovating an old house a few years back...but we learned by trial and error, and it turned out nice.

About how much time before you test to knock it down minutes? hours?

Hi Kelly, it really depends upon the type of joint compound you are using

seejanedrill (2 years ago)
fantastic, you did it, way to go!
macville82 (2 years ago)
Can you use premixed joint compound, or is it better to use a hot mix? I am guessing the latter since there is a certain point at which you need to knock it down.
seejanedrill (2 years ago)
There's no preferred type...it's just about how quickly you want to do the job
Brenda Contreras (2 years ago)
How much do you charge for a room? I want to do it myself but very afraid I will mess up lol
seejanedrill (2 years ago)
you should give it a try, the texture is forgiving
