Sample text

Concrete Retaining Wall: Mix a 1" squeeze of Medium Gray with 1/2" of Raw Sienna acrylic tube color or 2 teaspoons Polly S Reefer Gray and 1/2 teaspoon Polly S Earth and 4 drops liquid detergent to 8 ounces water in spray bottle. Red Granite Rust Wall: Add 1/2 teaspoon Polly S to the basic brick wall color. Always experiment with new colors on the back of a wall or a piece of scrap plaster, and always evaluate colors after the plaster has dried. The next step is to paint some of the individual bricks or stones a slightly different color.

The proportion of paint to thinner is EASY WASH WEATHERING To give a structure a "painted in" seasoned look, paint it with the color you like, to which you've mixed about 20% white. The white will lighten and dull the color. After the paint has dried (at least overnight, a is better), go over the walls with a wash of lamp black (or black pigmented wiping stain, or flat black enamel) thinned with mineral spirits (1/4 teaspoon lamp black to 5 ounces of thinner). This wash fills the nail holes and wood grain with a dark, "grime" color.

These starter colors can be combined to make realstone wall and concrete colors. Please, don't let the fancy names confuse you, what you're really selecting are basic reds, yellows, blues, and earth shades. These can be combined on the palette to make all the other colors you need. As an example, make green by mixing yellow and blue or combine Burnt Sienna and Cerulean Blue for a nice neutral earth color then add a little yellow and it becomes a good simulation of weathered copper. I mix watercolors on a grade-school watercolor palette (enameled tin with lots of small paint depressions), but any nonporous surface will do, even a sheet of waxed paper.
