Pulling – texture of the painted surface


We can obtain a delicate, striped pattern by pulling a brush on the top layer of non-covering oil paint. First, apply the backing layer and let it dry. Then coat a wide strip of surface with an even coat of colored non-covering paint, then run over the wet paint with a brush, leaving thin, straight stripes. Then paint another strip of wall paint and run the brush over it.

Sometimes it's easier to ask someone to help you; then one person applies paint, the other runs the brush over it.

It is one of the basic techniques for texturing wood, giving the surface the texture of raw silk, while highlighting all the irregularities and blemishes of the wood. The brush movement must always be in the direction of the grain; panels must not be painted towards the corners, so that the paint does not collect in them. First, paint the slats and let them dry. Wavy or crossing brush strokes also produce interesting effects.

Special paint brushes can be purchased at paint shops, but the same result can be achieved with a regular paintbrush.

Wanting to reach a straight line on a high wall, pull the brush down as far, how can you do it, then start pulling the brush upwards from the floor, until it reaches the previous lane. Try every time, so that the connection is at a different height.
