restored specialist decoration of duck egg blue dragging

decoration using the dragging technique

Restoration to this 17th century extension of a period Halifax house involved the dragging of panels in a pale blue. This type of subtle dragging paint finish provides an excellent backdrop to pictures whilst bringing out the best features of the panelling system. This paint finish lends an air of delicacy to the walls unobtainable with flat and opaque paint. Dragging is a long used specialist decorators technique and has its origins in the methods of wood graining. A dragging paint finish is considered to be one of the best back drops for the hanging of paintings. It is an ideal paint finish for the decoration of the historic interior.
