How do you paint an ombre wall with two colors?
Step 1: In a container mix together color 1 and color 2. We will call this color 3. Use your eye to determine if you need more of one color to create the perfect blend. Step 2: Paint a thick stripe of this newly blended color (color 3) with your roller, right along the line of where color 1 and color 2 meet.
How do you blend paint on walls?
Blend the Sections
Work quickly so that the paint does not dry. Immediately do the same to blend the middle and top sections, using a different dry brush. Blend as much or as little as you like, but do it quickly so the paint does not dry before it is blended. When you’re done blending, let the paint dry completely.
How do you fade paint from one color to another?
Pour a third paint color into a paint tray, roll a rag in the paint and apply it to the wall in the same manner as the first two colors. Use a dry brush to blend the second and third color edges together. Repeat until you have added each color of paint you planned for the wall. Allow the paint to dry overnight.

Will roller marks go away when paint dries?

How do I get exact paint to match my wall?
If you’re trying to match paint on sheetrock or drywall, the easiest way to get a perfect match is to bring a sample with you to the paint store. Use a utility knife to score a square into the surface of the sheetrock about 1⁄8 in (0.32 cm) deep, then peel away the paper.
Can you touch up paint without painting whole wall?
You don’t have time to repaint the entire wall to ensure every mark is covered and the color is the same. However, touch–ups are tricky. Most times the paint will not match unless you have the original paint.
Should you paint light or dark colors first?
When painting with acrylics, you usually paint the mid tones first (local color), then add the darks (shadows), and finish with the lightest parts (highlights).
