When you’re doing the strie or dragging on an actual wall surface, you’re going to work from ceiling to floor. So, what I recommend is get a towel and you dip it in the water. You get it all really, really wet and then you start from the bottom and you just go over the wall and getting it a damp. It helps the glaze move just even a little bit more so that it doesn't stick and then you hate yourself. Anyway, but after you get that done, you’ll then dip into your glaze and you’ll start to paint. What you want to do is paint about a foot or so. But you’re going to paint it all the way. You’ll put the glaze on all the way floor to ceiling and once you’ve got it on there, then you’re going to take your actual dragging brush and you’re going to have a rag nearby too. And you’re going to start at the top and go down in one continuous motion as straight as possible. Of course, you can get wavy but it's going to be okay. So, then you just keep going, until you’ve completed that section, leaving about an inch of wet edge on the side. Once you’ve finished with that wet edge, what you’re going to do is you’re going to take your towel and you’re going to go back in and you can go to the next section and you’re going to put in on the water all over on that wall again. Then you are going to dip into your actual glaze this time and then you’re going to put in on, try not to go over anything you’ve done only maybe just a little bit. Go the whole way up and down the wall again and then you’re going to work your way once more with the dragging brush. That's how you’re going to work your whole way around the room and then, of course you’re done. But anyway, you can clean up your brush. Your brush will get wet and you just rid of it and that's it for that part.
