I am needing a faux painting techniques to accomplish 2 things. First, I need some sort of shadow effect on the chair rail to make it pop and look more 3-D. Second, I need the walls to be grimy. Both of these need to be done on the cheap and fast - I have 3 large rooms and a hallway to do by the end of the week! I've googled tutorials and ideas but NOTHING has come up. My first thought has been to get some brown chalk and go under the white line and smudge downwards, and then use a few shades of brown/black/grey chalk to smudge on the rest of the walls. But I'm not sure if this will give the effect I want or if it will look like smudged chalk. :/ Ideas?
