Ragging Faux Finish Painting

Now you can learn to faux paint this popular faux finish known as “ragging” in less than half the time that other methods take.


Bathroom with Ragging

In this bathroom we ragged on 3 different colors to match all the colors of the fixtures in the room. A great tip is to buy all your accessories first, then match the colors for the glazes you will use on the walls.


Why use the Triple S Faux System© for ragging on your faux finish?

Most faux painting methods require you to hold the rag in your hand. Not only is it messy, requiring the use of gloves, but it can get quite tiring on the hands after awhile. To add more than one color, the steps must be repeated. However, using the Tuck and Gather tool, your hands are not holding the rag directly. You don't have to hold the rag, crumpled, in your hand. You tuck the rag onto the tool and then press it on to the Multi Color Faux Palette that holds all the color glazes you are using. Both are included in the Basic Faux Painting Kit.

What are the best colors to use?

Using colors that are contrasting makes for a more dramatic textural look whereas using colors in the same family gives a more subtle effect on your wall.
