Ragging is a faux painting technique that provides both warmth and texture to any room.
Step 2: Apply the base coat. The base coat should always be either a satin or a semi-gloss finish. We are using latex paint here for both easy application and cleanup. Apply the base coat over the primer coat with a roller. Apply the base coat over a two- or three-foot section of the wall, filling in the space between. After the base layer dries, you will often find areas missing paint. You will get better overall results if you give the walls another even coat of base paint before you start. Apply the base coat over three-foot sections and fill in the spaces between.
