Faux Painting 101:Similar to rag-rolling, recreate the luxe look of leather on your walls with chamois. Start by painting the base color on the walls, then roll and tie several pieces of chamois together. Apply glaze onto the wall over the base coat by rolling the chamois gently. The soft texture of chamois results in the soft, mottled look reminiscent of distressed leather.
Faux Painting 101: Crumple a rag, then roll it into a worm-like shape. Roll it down the painted or glazed wall surface for a subtle faux effect. For more drama, try adding the paint or glaze onto the rag itself before rolling on the wall. (Note: In this photo, shale blue was rag-rolled on top of a Baltic green base, then antique glaze was sponge-rolled over both.)
