The stippling technique is used to create a unique effect by blending two colours. Start by applying the first paint coat on the wall, let it dry, and then apply a thin coat of different colour paint over it. While the second paint coat is still wet, use a stippling brush to dab the paint coat to create the stippling effect in the form of microdots that will be repeated all over the wall.
