Faux Painting 101:Similar to rag-rolling, recreate the luxe look of leather on your walls with chamois. Start by painting the base color on the walls, then roll and tie several pieces of chamois together. Apply glaze onto the wall over the base coat by rolling the chamois gently. The soft texture of chamois results in the soft, mottled look reminiscent of distressed leather.
