It is only meant to add unique looks and textures so that our home exterior and interior do not look too plain, boring, and monotonous. Besides, we can also paint our faux limestone our self easily. First of all, we can prime the wall with two coats of off-white latex paint and allow it to dry. We can use a pencil and ruler to mark off squares that suggest stone blocks. Then, we can add a warm undertone to the wall and apply a limestone-colored wash of latex paints. We can mix small amounts of taupe and yellow paint and thin with water to the consistency of thin soup. We can brush the wash freely in all directions and rub it into the surface with a cloth. We should not to strive for a carefully painted finish.
Painting faux stacked limestone can be continued by applying the shadowing technique. We can use three shades for shadowing: taupe for a dark shade, off-white for a medium shade and white for highlighting. We can mix each color with water to a watercolor consistency. When we want to make light appear to come from one side, we can apply the darker color on the left, the medium in the middle and the light on the right side. To finish the wall, we can mix an over-glaze by combining glazing liquid, mineral spirits and tinting colors such as raw umber and raw sienna.
