I purchased a Faux technique Glaze base

then selected the Interior Latex Color I wanted for my technique.

My color was City Bistro which is a red/brown but once mixed with the Glaze it went on looking more like a dark Pink.

Any ideas on how to darken this to the red/brown once it has been mixed together?

Can you explain the technique/finished look you were trying to achieve?? I have used glazing compound in many applications with great results, but I need to now what your goal is... Don't despair. It's only paint and it can be fixed!!

I purchased some darker brown paint and managed to get the desired color but when it comes to the techniques... I tried sponging with sea sponges....... I tried a rag roller... I tried stippling for antique leather look and also the woodgrain thingy. None of which looked good. The uneveness (warped?) of the wall made the rag roller and the woodgrain thingy loose contact with the wall in places. As for the sponge and stippling... could not get the work areas blended together without a dark overlapps or light verses dark work areas.

They make the techniques look so easy on TV and online.
