Distressed faux block wall

   Here is an example of a distressed faux block wall where the outer wall area looks broken away exposing  the concrete blocks. A rag technique was used over a light texture of dried compound to achieve this look. The glaze was built up around the cracked perimeter randomly to give depth to the blocks.
  We used several glazes from the same color family with the base coat being the lightest.
Eggshell sheen latex was used for the base coats and glazes. Textured surfaces are great to work with while glazing, the glaze falls into the texture and produces great affects.
