I put on a final layer of paper mache using Kirkland brand paper towels from Costco. I like its texture.

I first tried using some wall texture spray but I didn’t like how it took the paint.

What I found that worked better was using some old paint that I had in the garage and mixing in a boatload of sand into it.

This created the texture and consistency I was looking for.

For final coloring I just used some 99 cent bottles of paint from arts & crafts section of Wallmart and mixed them together with some water until I found a combination to my liking.
