Tuscan Paint Color Help


I bought the tuscan paint kit from lowes. The color I picked was suppose to be a light brown. I really like the paint but it has a yellow tint and is alot lighter than what it is suppose to be. My wife doesn't like the color at all. Is there any options to make it darker without ruining the texture look to it? The reason is because the cabinets are a off white and the color of the yellow/light brown is flowing to close to each other.

Tuscan Paint Color Help


the tuscan paint is a faux painting method. Can a glaze go over it or sponge something over it to make it darker?

Sure.
Never used the kit you have, but going darker is always possible.
Get quality materials- and do a little googling and also at You tube for tips.
Modern Masters makes some of the best specialty finish products.
