Making our furniture unique and does not look too common is likely everyone’s desire in order to have exclusiveness inside their houses. Well, to make it true, the faux painting techniques can be something that we rely on. What are faux painting techniques? These techniques are the techniques for creating desired textures which are interesting on your furniture. Faux is actually the French’s word for fake which means we make artificial patterns. This kind of techniques is kind of hot for today, as many people consider it as modern phenomenon. But actually, you’re wrong if you think that these techniques are kinda new, because these techniques have been around since the Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians times. So, what should we know about faux painting techniques? Buckle up folks!
The sponge painting is the 1st technique which can be applied. It’s very simple since all you need is a sponge to be dipped into paint and then applied/ press it to the wall so there will be patterns created. By doing this will create illusions of sponge on the wall and it will be so attractive yet unique at the same time. So, what are you waiting for? Just get a sponge and start playing with it. You can use more than one color/ paint for this by the way. Secondly is the ragging technique which also means “rag rolling.” What is that? To be short, this will give the effect/ pattern of aging plaster. But now there are also ragging covers available on the market which can be bought by you.
Next one is crackling which is a technique that crates the old/ vintage/ antique look. This can be achieved by painting the wall with the color that you like and then leave it to get dry by itself. And then after it’s dry, get a single coat offaux-finish crackling medium applied and then leave it to get dry itself. When you find it’s not sticky anymore, get a top coat of the same color applied as the base cat. When it gets dry, the bottom color will be shown through the cracks.
