Hi, this is Chris Burke, better known as Mr. Faux, and today we're going to talk about country paint decorating techniques, like sponging and ragging. Materials you'll need are a quart of paint color, faux finish glazing liquid and a natural sea sponge. Before you begin, make sure yo tape off all the edges in the room you will be painting. This is to ensure you have a clean and perfect lines. Sponging and ragging are the same process, you're just creating a different look. The first step is to mix the paint with glazing liquid. This will be two parts glaze to one part paint. Next you'll dip your sea sponge into the mixture, dab off any excess paint. This is because you don't want to have too much paint on the sponge to begin. Now start sponging. Do 80 percent coverage, don't worry about letting it dry, because the paint will dry as you go. Once you've completed the wall, go back and repeat the process. Now you have created a wall paper like look. This is Chris Burke, better known as Mr. Faux, and today I showed you country paint decorating techniques, sponging and ragging.
