Dragger Stippler examples

LIMEWASHING

Limewashing

  1. Apply a base coat … we chose light blue … and allow to dry.
  2. Load the tips of the bristles of the Dragger Stippler with your second colour … we used white and apply to the surface using long sweeping strokes.

Tip. You can add more depth to the finish by allowing the second to dry and repeating step 2 with the base colour and work with your paint quite thin so you don’t get too much texture on the surface.

 

DRAGGING ON

Faux Dragging on

  1. Apply a base coat … we chose mid yellow … and allow to dry.
  2. For the second coat you work with 3 shades that are reasonably close together … we used deep yellow … peachy red and a hint of brown. For this effect you use very little paint so pour a little of each colour on a saucer or the lid of the paint can. Don’t allow any drying time betwwen colours as you want them to blend together. Load the Dargger Stippler with deep yellow and apply with long sweeping strokes … repeat with the peachy red … then repeat sparingly with the brown.

Tip. To intensify the effect simply repeat step 2.

 

DRAGGING OFF

Faux Dragging off

  1. 1.Apply a base coat … we chose white … and allow to dry.
  2. Apply a second colour … we used terracotta … this you work with while it’s wet so on a large area do about 1 sq metre at a time … use the Dragger Stippler in a wavy sweeping action to take part of the top coat off and reveal the base colour underneath.

Tip. Work with your paint quite thin for the top coat so you don’t get too much texture on the surface.

 

DISTRESSING

Distressing

  1. Apply a base coat … we chose dark green … and allow to dry.
  2. Apply a second colour … we used sea green … this you work with while it’s wet so on a large area do about 1 sq metre at a time. Use the Dragger Stippler in an irregular swirling motion to remove part of the top coat and reveal the base colour underneath. Vary the pressure in random areas to give it age and character.

Tip. Work with your paint quite thin for the top coat so you don’t get too much texture on the surface.
