6 # Washington Blvd Culver City, CA. Culver Blvd Culver City, CA. I see some kind of wine tasting or cooking class going on in the store's kitchen,
Culver City, CA#Culver City # Get Directions# Phone number# Oh, and it's a store a great store for finding all the equipment, tools,
you could hombre` the paint on the wall
Paint the entire wall the lighest color of sage you want to use. Take the overall length of the wall and divide into
say ...ten equal vertical sections. mark a light line just at the top and bottom. Make sure they are plumb. Buy a quart of the darkest color of sage you want to use. I have the paint store just put all the pigment into a can of glaze. They will argue but tell them thats what you want. Now go home and portion the glaze into ten equal amounts. Take a can of white paint and add ten tablespoons of white to the first, nine to the second, eight to the third,etc.,etc.I should tell you to mark each container 10,9,8, darkest to lightest. You should now have ten different shades of your sage. Working with a friend and very quickly....roll on (small roller thats easy to change) the first dark stripe to the pencil mark, then the next lighest, then the next till its all painted glazed stripes. Try not to overlap if possible. Now still working quickly you can do one of two things... You can take a large well rung out sea sponge and pull as straight down as possible top to bottom wringing out sponge before you move over to the next verical pass. Continue on until the wall is finished. Stand back admire your work. There should be a very subtle transition from dark to light. The other technique is to still paint the different glazes but while they are still wet pull a plastic bristled push broom (new, no handle) through the paint wipng after each pass. The effect will be a strie` with the base coat a little more obvious to the eye upon close inspection. Tip...one person should paint- they have a controlled pressure. Same for the scrubber or dragger. You want a uniform look done by one hand. You will see a difference if two of you do the same task.
