Colour Washing

Sponge Painting

In this painting process, all you need is a sponge or paint roller tool dip it in the paint Colour of your choice, and dab it all over the existing wall paint color. By dabbing a thin layer of paint you can get a subtle effect and by applying a thicker layer textural effect can be created.

Rag Rolling

This painting style is similar to the sponge and Colour wash technique. take a rag and fold it in a manner to create creases. then dip the folded rag in the paint and start pressing randomly all over the wall surface.

Strie Painting

This painting technique creates a vertical lining effect same to the look of linen cloth. To achieve this texture on the wall, apply two coats of satin paint as a base paint coat on the wall. Leave it to dry for a minimum of 4 hours. Then mix four parts of the glaze with one part of the paint. Then apply the paint to the wall’s surface using a faux brush with wide bristles or a roller tool.


To achieve this painting effect on the wall, measure and mark three equal sections horizontally on the wall. Then apply different paint colors for each section by leaving a few spaces between each section. After painting the main sections mix some of the upper section and middle sectionpaint colors to fill the unpainted space.

Stencil Painting

Choose the wall stencil pattern. fix the stencil on the wall surface using painters tape. Then apply paint over the pattern by using a brush or paint roller tool. Make sure the brush is not loaded with heavy paint Colour otherwise, it will bleed under the edges.

Half - Painted Walls

Using a measuring tape and marker/ pencil divide the wall into two halves. Then apply painter's tape to cover the divider line on the wall. With the roller, the brush tool starts painting half of the wall slightly above the divider line.

Metallic Checker

By using painter's tape create a grid of squares pattern on the wall surface. Then paint the alternate square in metallic Colour using a paint roller brush.


Using painter's tape and a ruler create stripes all over the wall surface. Then apply the supplementary Colour of the wall base Colour coat on each of the alternative sections to get a striped effect.
