So when you paint a base coat, let it dry – really dry – before putting a dark wash over it.

And don't dilute the dark paint with warm water, or your wash will wash off the base coat. I knew that. Now I know it better.

I have to learn a lot of things 5 or 12 times.

Why would you dilute ANY paint with warm water?

Amazing what we keep forgetting and having to relearn.

Never, if you are paying attention.
