Decorative Paint Techniques


  Many decorative painting techniques offer more depth and interest than a plain painted wall. Some involve glazes and other materials that take time to master. But several, including the five shown here, are easy to do, particularly if you take the time to test the application on a sample piece of drywall to see how much of the secondary color you want to apply. In a nutshell, you can use a natural sea sponge to create a dappled finish, a rolled up rag to lay on a second or third coat for extra texture, or a combing tool to drag lines in a second coat to reveal the undercoat. Stippling blends one tone with another with a wide brush, while spattering adds dots of color to a top coat as you tap on the brush.
