Colour wash is a popular technique in faux painting to create a subtle wash of colour over walls or other surfaces. It is a free-form finish that creates subtle variations of colour using multiple hues of glaze blended together with a paint brush. Colour washing was historically created with oil-based products because of the long drying time, but today’s environmental and health conscious companies are producing user-friendly water based glazes. Colour wash can be applied in any colour of paint and is generally applied with brushes over a solid paint color, using long sweeping strokes to meld the glaze colours together. Lancaster Painters Australia European heritage washes include French wash, distemper, lime wash, tallow lime wash and more.
