Painting on the wall - huge, rusty, oily pattern


I really like this photowallpaper, but it's quiet impossible to import it:

I think - based on my basic but quiet good paining skills - I can reproduce it with painting. But...

- which type of paint is good for this? I think it should be dense and a little bit "rough"

- how can I reproduce the pattern? with brush and sponge?

- any general idea?

Thank you,

Welcome to the forums!

It can be reproduced using faux painting techniques. I've never done much faux painting and can't remember how the veining is done but the rest can be done with a rag [a sponge may work] going over the paint that was "brushed" on.

I think a feather will work to apply the veining.
