Sponging:

One of the easiest techniques to master, sponging can give your walls the delicate, mottled look of aged porcelain as well as the dramatic look of rustic stoneware.

 


 

Ragging:

By giving the appearance of shifting color density, ragging evokes the timeless appeal of well-worn leather or soft-faded chambray. As with sponging, different effects can be achieved by applying or removing glaze with a rag or cloth.

Dry Brushing:

Add a touch of drama to any room with the softly textured look of dry brushing. It is a simple and affordable way to turn an ordinary space into a cozy retreat.
