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?

picture of 5 tools and DVDMost 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 Multi Color Faux Palette and Tuck and Gather tool that is included in the Faux Painting Kit all of that is eliminated.

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.

Suggestions for color schemes

Take a look at the suggestions for color schemes below. With the Triple S DVD Faux Painting Kit, the sky is the limit when it comes to adding texture to your walls with the added blessing of saving money on expensive plaster glazes.
