About Color Washing Your Walls

Color washing is a one of the most

popularpaint finishes used today in

Faux/Decorative Painting.


It has the look  off

Artisan Plaster/Venetian Plaster.  
Sometimes refered to as an

OLD WORLD FINISH.


It is a form of faux/decorative paintiing perfected by

professional paint finishers. 


Color washing can be done in any color or combination of colors.  This kind of painting is generally applied with brushes over a solid paint color.


Using a color wash is a fun way to make a space look interesting and alive.  Even if it's only a focus wall,  it adds another layer of affection to any room.   


It's so much more then a solid color on the walls.

It changes the energy of your sanctuary .


Color washing is often used as a Focus Wall.  

It is also a very safe way to try something new.  If you have a wall that you want to be noticed,  you can use this finish to get that done.  If you really like it a lot, you can always do the rest of the walls in the room the same way.  If you decide that you want to go back to a solid color,  you only have the one wall to do over.  It is a very small risk with amazing reward.


There are many ways to configure a project with decorative painting.


One popular way of creating a focus wall is to use the color of the solid colored walls as the primary.  The second color can be one shade or more darker or lighter.  The more contrast there is between these colors, the more pop there is in the pattern.  

The effect can be very subtle!


Or... it can be as bold as you want it to be.  

"See slides above."


This gives you a full range of possibilities and creates

a perfect blend of color in the room with it all flowing together.


Note:  You don't have to use this method of color selection for color washing or any of the other finish types featured above.  You can use completely different colors on your focus wall.  It's all up to you.
