The wall of love by Magda Polakow

Hello everyone!
Yesterday I was looking for some new interior design ideas. I couldn't decide which design I prefered Bohemian or Industrial. I'm hopeless.
I love them both! I think I need to mix them together. 
Here is my project for today.

Looks difficult? Nothing could be more wrong!
I only used two products - Gesso and Chalk Mist.
Not believe? Check it out!
Step by step photos you will find below.

Love, love, love this effect! I think I will make a wall in my room using this technique ;)
I applied a thick layer of gesso.

When gesso dries something like skin or scum appear. This is a moment when 'the messing my project part' starts. I used my finger and pushed and moved the skin.

Some parts of the skin came off. I left it to dry.

I sprayed mists.
And that's it!

I used:
Chalk Mist Grey


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will definitely try your technique, Magda!

  2. Magda, this is so beautiful and so full of texture! Who would have guessed it could be so simple. Love the tag. Simple elegance!
