Combing Paint Finish Technique

The combing paint finish is a faux finish achieved by dragging a comb or dry brush across fresh paint for subtle hues, dramatic contrasts or luxurious looks in the bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen, den or other living area.  The effect can be formal, sophisticated, fine, and pinstriped.  It can be used on walls, moldings, doors and furniture.  The faux finish can combine with ragged walls, dragged baseboards and stencils.
