Faux Finishes & Restoration Techniques for Historic Homes

Ragging On and Ragging Off Faux Finishes    

Urban Revivals can quickly complete ragging on or ragging off treatments for your walls or ceilings. We use water-based paint and oil-based glaze treatments, for quick and beautiful semi-translucent ragged finishes. We can rag off using paper towels (for a stone-like look), plastic wrap (reminiscent of grasses or coarse textured walls) or soft linen (for walls that look like crushed velvet). Most techniques shown here use soft linens, such as contractor rags.
