If you’ve love to looking fine fabric, why not put it on your walls? With these simple brush techniques some people called Strie some people called Dragging either way it’s really going to dress up your room. Some people prefer simple vertical lines like quarterly but later I will show you how to get a lean in look. This technique is pretty straight forward but you have to work fast. The materials needed for this technique are paint tray, latex paint mix with one part paint, two parts water and one part latex glaze. A four inch ton of bristle brush a two inch ton of bristle brush, a paint pad, latex gloves and rugs. This is a traditional way to make a Strie but I’m going to make your life a whole lot easier with this paint pad, let me show you how. Dip the paint pad in the paint and use one long coetaneous stroke down the wall. Almost as soon as that paint goes on it’s time to take it off. I’m applying a fear amount of pressure to the dry brush and keep it dry by rubbing it with the rug. I like to overlap each stroke just a bit and it begin to look like there is too much paints as they dub in the brush, wipe it off and lightly brush the area. When you’re done let the wall dry completely, now that strie let’s taking in a different direction, horizontally. Same drill across the wall, the paint pad puts on the paint and the dry brush takes it off. It is so not to drag to create this richly textured in look that’s why I prefer the term strie. Don’t be afraid to change up the color you don’t have to start with the white basecoat, different colors and I’ll give you different looks to dress up your walls.
