I briefly saw a technic that covered wall paneling with brown paper and a urethane/water mixture. It filled in the grooves and gave it a leather look. You could paint over it afterwards. Does anyone have any more information on this technic? I've look everywhere and have had absolutely no luck.

I saw the same tech. on Lynette Jennings showseveral months ado. She does have a web site, I would check with her. I have painted over paneling before, its alot of work, but well worth it.Personally I would fill the lines with spackle, prime the entire room, and then apply the brown paper bags. That way if you ever want to remove them it will be less difficult. She applied them with regular wall paper paste. After that you would just use different glazes, and dry brush tech. until you get the desired effect.
A darker glaze or antiq. gel will catch in the overlapping peices to give you the effect you are looking for.Also, before putting the brown paper up crumple them up. it will give you more texture. Good Luck.
