Paint Dragging

Paint dragging is one of the most useful and versatile paint techniques which can be used to add texture to your walls without appearing overpowering.
Dragging is a faux painting technique that produces thin, vertical stripes on your wall and works best on wood paneling or a smooth wall surface.

Generally, dragging involves two basic steps:
1. Paint your base coat colour onto your walls and allow to dry
2. Now paint over your base coat with a different paint colour (your topcoat / glaze) and then drag a paint brush over the freshly painted surface to slightly reveal the base coat color.

For a subtle dragging effect, use similar colours – for a more dramatic dragging effect, use colours that are further apart on the color wheel.
