fix faux painting?

I was trying to faux paint for my nephew and I did not know what I was doing and you can see the lines where I started and stopped while I faux painted his rooms. Does anyone know how I can fix this/ Thanks,mike

Repaint. There really is no way to "fix" those lines. I'm assuming, from your description that you are referring to lap lines, where you overglazed on top of partially dried glaze or paint. In theory, you could try applying some base and redoing those spots, but generally its just easier to repaint. Or, if you are talking about a "suede" or "river rock" the same thing holds true--the lines are where you overlapped and are probably not going to be easy to fix. If you want to try, you can brush the texture on in cross-hatched patterns over the previous layers and that will often cover it.
