    I recently finished a large rock for a 3/4 wall mount deer display,and I need advice on painting.I usually mix black paint with water,paint rock,then spray with water to remove paint and leave highlites and toning.The problem is that my rocks come out looking to "stone gray" instead of the nice,(soft) color I'm looking for.Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!

    Do multiple washes of differing colors and don't use complete coverage of washes. Rocks are not all one tone
