Faux Painting Questions From Readers

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.

I think that before painting your room, pick out a color scheme for your walls. When you chose your paint, remember that many painting techniques use two shades of one color. If you are using one of the techniques that does use two shades of color for painting your room walls, you can pick a darker color than you normally would chose for your base color, since the lighter top color will make the final result much lighter.
