DRAGGING | RAGGING

 

DRAGGING

Smooth the surface and then cover with one or two coats of matte oil-based paint. Next, apply the tinted oil glaze over the matte paint in vertical strips 2 ft (60 cm) wide. When the glaze is applied, take a flogger brush and drag it down the wall in vertical strokes. The color of the matte paint will show through the glaze. As you work, wipe off the excess glaze from the brush with a lint cloth. Use the brush firmly.

RAGGING

Ragging creates an indistinct patterned effect. Apply a coat of matte oil-based paint to a prepared surface. Brush on the glaze. Bunch up a lint-free cloth and dab off the glaze from the surface. After 30 minutes, brush over with the tip of a softening brush to soften.

 

 

THE OVERALL EFFECT OF RAGGING
Ragging creates a very subtle effect. The color and pattern on a finished surface should look like a soft blur.

 

 

SOFTENING THE EFFECT
With ragging you soften the color twice, first with a lint cloth and second with the tips of a softening brush.
