Way to Paint The Walls
Before starting any kind of painting you have to be sure your wall is clean. I prefer washing the wall, and then dry the wall after washing.
You should start your wall-painting by edging
Paint a 2-inch strip with a brush, starting at the ceiling. Repeat the same in the corners, the bottom of the wall, around any kind of edging, doors and windows, around cabinets, outlets, switchboards, vents…etc.
Use masking tape to protect everything you don’t want it get painting then cover the floor, and furniture.
There are many painting techniques available and good.
– The dragging: it means drawing a dragging brush, and it has long haired, and give you smooth surface
– Distressing is creating an aged look, using several layers of paint, sand paper, and clear lacquer.
– Marbling is imitating real marble colors and veining.
– Sponging is giving you mottled look.
– Ragging, and rag-rolling means blotting with crumpled natural fiber cloth like linen, burlap, and give you a look of crushed velvet, parchment, chamois leather, watered silk or brocade.
– Stippling is a technique of breaking-up the wall color into a mass of tiny dots to add richness to the finish.
– Paneling is decorating the walls with panels.
– Broken color is applying broken layers, and you can choose different colors to creates mottled, or textured effect.
