Let Painters Painting Toronto Give your Walls a Faux Finish by “Ragging”!

Jul 30, 2010 by     Comments Off    Posted under: Techniques

When it comes to giving walls a fresh new faux finish, Painters Painting Toronto often use a technique called “ragging”.  This is a specialty of the Toronto painting contractors, a unique approach to decorating your surfaces.

The process of rag painting involves the Toronto painter using a rag instead of his brush.  It isn’t a messy style, but it does require repetitive-steps.  Fortunately, Painters Painting Toronto has been doing ragging for over 22 years, and with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, to boot.  All of the paints the Toronto painting contractors use are eco-friendly.

When ragging, contrasting colours are used for a dramatic textured look that will intensify your walls.  In some cases, Painters Painting Toronto will apply a color wash to your walls before ragging to maximize the textured look.  Colour washing your walls adds more dimension.  Ragging will commence once the colour wash has dried.

Textured looks aren’t the only style of ragging – primary and basic colours can produce a more subtle effect.  As well, ragging can be done in any room, including the bathroom.  Should there be fixtures on the walls, multiple colours can be used to match the style of the existing accessories.

Painters Painting Toronto have been ragging homes, offices, condos, apartments and cottages for over 22 years.  Each rag painting project comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.  Phone 416-618-0400, or visit their official website at www.painterspaintingtoronto.com today.
