The Best Rag Painting Techniques for Walls

Of all the paint treatments that can be used, rag painting techniques are one of the most subtle and elegant and is the most useful in creating a number of different decorating looks for walls. Ragging creates a broken color technique, using thinned down paint or glaze and brushing it over a base coat, then using paper towels, rags or plastic trash bags while the paint is still damp, you rag some of it off to create a mottled or textured effect on the walls.
