To lift the flatness of a flush door, paintingjaux panels creates an effective three-dimensional illusion. First measure up your door. Determine the number and size of the panels you want, and the dimensions of the faux rails and stiles. Measure and draw in the panels in pencil directly onto the surface. Mix up two shades of the chosen door colour, one lighter than the other, and then apply the darkest shade to each of the panels. When dry, paint the rest of the door in the lighter colour, beginning with the centre stiles, progressing to the rails, and finally paint the outer stiles.

Painting fake panels on a flush door

The tops of the panels and the sides closest to the light should be lined in the darker tone; the bottoms and further sides in the lighter tone. The thicker the lines you draw, the deeper your panel will appear to be. It is not advisable to make them too thick. You must judge this to suit the proportions of the panels you have created and choose the width of your brush accordingly. A fine brush is recommended. Use a wooden or plastic ruler with a bevelled top. Turn the bevel against the door so that it stands proud of the surface. Line the ruler up with the edge of the panel, rest the ferrule of the brush on the inside edge, and drag the brush gent1/2 along it.
