This technique creates a surface with beautiful striped effects. The size of the rows depends on the type of comb you will use.
The comb technique uses enamel paint that gives depth and shine to the surface.
- Add a few tablespoons of upholstery glue to the chosen color. The paint must be thick enough
- Apply a generous amount of paint with a brush
- Pass the comb creating the grooves first one way and then the other until the desired effect is achieved
Teeth of the comb
There are commercially available combs ready for this technique, but if you prefer you can cut out yourself from a piece of fairly stiff linoleum. The advantage, in this case, is that you can decide whether to create more or less thin toothing by varying the final effect.
