COBALT BLUE, RED TERRACOTTA, LIGHT GREEN, LIME IS WHITE FOR MIXING THE COLORS, when you mix the colors the colors get diluted in the dry mixi, use old sponges also for smal textures. the base was a latex base paint regular linen white, first on the wall, I had some yellow also but always mix with lime never pure, try frist outside and wear a mask and cover your eyes and hair, after work is finish vacum very good, and hose down the lime and color from your clothes, do not allow anyone in the room to settle the color for a day....look at your work identify the area you want to fix , repeat and finish third day look again and if you happy with your work vacum the room and apply flat poliuretane with a roller small and big slowly....get some turpentine and ragas to clean use gloves...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to Color Inspiration From the Mediterranean
Venetian plaster is a classic paint finish in Italy and other Mediterranean countries. The original technique involves applying several layers of plaster, along with natural pigments. Fortunately, today we can purchase acrylic "plaster" for easier application, or we could hire a terrific faux artist! Colors such as terra cotta and azure are commonly seen in this wall treatment.

Gradation. This space between two rooms has an accent wall that use gradation in color. This gives the space a unique and complementary color scheme.
