Faux Finish Painting Techniques

Q: I’ve seen a faux finish painting technique that combined two different colors onto a wall. What is this technique called and how do I do it?

 

A: The two-tone technique you’ve seen is probably the result of using a glaze in conjunction with a standard base coat of paint. The glaze modifies the appearance of the base coat by partially concealing it with a translucent filter. The glazing technique can be “positive” or “negative.” With a positive technique, you add glaze to the wall to enhance the décor. With a negative technique, you cover the base coat with glaze and then use a tool such as a sponge or rag to remove it, revealing the base color beneath. For more details on application techniques, search the internet for “faux finish glaze” or visit extremehowto.com.
