Dragging

Dragging

Explore the art of subtlety. Add definition and interest to your walls or floors.

  1. Paint wall base coat colour. Let dry for 48 hours.

  2. Using a level, mark off walls in squares and rectangles of different sizes.

  3. On paper, map out colour placement.

  4. You will be using 4 colours including the base coat, therefore you will have to decide what colour each of the squares should be.

  5. Mask off the square of one of the top coat colours with painter's tape.

  6. Mix glaze and paint in an 8 parts glaze to 1 part paint mixture.

  7. Using steel wool unroll pad and wrap tightly around a roller sleeve.Dragging

  8. Roll paint mixture into masked off square and drag steel wool from top of section to the bottom in one continuous stroke. Repeat until you are satisfied with the look. The more dragging you do, the softer the finished look will be.

  9. Repeat Steps 4 to 8 with the next 2 colours.
