Variations and Practice

May-August 2012




Close-up of final wall texture before wood columns were added.  Note the subtle color shift from pink to violet.







Color application.
Base wall, green primer, color layers, gloss seal.





Color spectrum resulting from a green primer base.  Clear, high-gloss finish applied.
The green substrate and high reflection caused interference in the color rendering.
This was most notabel at high angles of incidence, such as along the top of the wall.





Re-priming with a black base.





Transition of color from with the black base coat.  A 'soft', non-glossy sealer was applied.
