Rag-rolling gives surfaces a richly textured finish, reminiscent of the random patterns of crushed velvet.
Use the technique to add colour and interest to walls, doors, furniture and accessories.
The term "rag-rolling" is used loosely to describe three main effects created using a rag or cloth.
Ragging - a fairly quick technique created by dabbing a paint-saturated rag onto the desired surface.
Ragging-on - another additive technique, but this time, the rag is rolled across the surface.
Ragging-off - a more subtle (subtractive) effect created by removing wet glaze with a dry rag.
With experience, you may wish to combine several of the above techniques, or use one technique combining several colours.
