Wendy darling, (Peter Pan pun - sorry! ;)LOL)

Are you sure you want to color wash, not glaze?

There are great directions for both on the Sherwin Williams paint website. Read closely to see which one you are after, since the terms are often interchanged while the results are very different!

Shewin Williams has a pretty good glaze for small projects like furniture-but I wouldn't use it on a wall- it dries too quickly.
