Adding Texture to Paint

I need instructions on different ways to texture paint, before I decide which to do. For example: sand, tissue, etc. Any suggestions?

Call Home Depot and Lowes and ask someone in the paint department. These home improvement stores have classes for beginners.

I'd recommend you determine which effect you want first....and then get the instructions for it. There are so many different ways to paint!

An idea: go to a local used book store or even your Borders book store and check out the decorating section. That's where I got my collection of painting books. One of my favorite books was a "bargain" book!
