This was a fun job. I had to do 6 panels in a client's formal living room. I created several sample options for them and they decided on the darker base color with a lighter glaze color rag washed on top. They also wanted to add some metallic highlights into the finish, so I topped it off with some gold metallic glaze.
In this picture, you will see that I started to wash in the cream / beige glaze color into the base. It doesn't look like much now, but the outcome was really beautiful.
