Faux Painting Grass Cloth on walls requires a ton of patience and a steady hand. You should do this technique with two painters. One to apply the glaze and one to apply the brushing technique.
This is also technique that looks much better on smooth walls instead of textured walls.
Tool tip: If the brush used has bristles that are too fine, the technique will resemble linen instead of grass cloth.
Also the color choices are important. Grasscloth is formed with, well… grass. So it would stand to reason that it would be green. Not so fast. It is dead grass. So it will be brown and gold with very light hints of green. Also… consider that it is woven. So shadows on the grass cloth will be greyed out greens or wheat colors.
