Painting Navajo

Here I go again, still looking for Eskielover. You gave a great answer to my last question but I plan to use

different colors. I was wondering if you or others could look at the color chart and see what color glaze I would use on Navajo white: http://www.materials-world.com/paint-colors/sherwin_williams/fundamentally_neutral/images/SW_Neutral_04.gif
to achieve similar results as in this picture: http://www.pbase.com/giancarlob/image/63677748

Yes you can use the Navajo White as your basecoat, but then to make the glaze in order to get the results you want use the baguette, burlap or coconut husk. Be careful, if you go really dark with the glaze color (like using the coconut husk) use the full 1/3 water to dilute the glaze and keep rinsing that damp rag so it doesn't become muddy, pat the glaze often. If your walls have texture, like orange peel, the darker coconut color will remain in the recessed areas and will really give you the look of aged stucco like in the picture of the stairwell. All three of those colors will work (just judging by the samples, of course) because they have the same tones of the burnt umber. The effect will be more subtle using the baguette or burlap, however. Before you put it on the wall, I highly recommend getting a spare piece of drywall or even matte board and doing a practice run. Paint looks different in every application based upon where the light sources are coming from and what is around them. In addition, watch your sample board throughout the day and evening hours because the changes in natural light change the way color appears. (i.e. some whites turn more pink at dusk and dawn).
