Faux Finishes & Restoration Techniques for Historic Homes

Rag Rolling Off Project - Potomac MD    

We find that the lacy appearance of a water-based rag rolled finish can be extremely attractive when combined with floral patterns and other interior decor details normally seen in traditional rooms. This technique used a rag rolling "off" method, combined with antiquing of the fireplace appliques. Rag rolling made the room look much more feminine and romantic. There are more rag rolled examples on our faux finish page.
