Clean the area of the wall you want to paint
The first thing you have to do is of course clean the wall area where you want to add gradient paint. To make painting easier and avoid failure, you should carefully prepare the wall to be painted and make sure it is completely dry. This includes removing all wallpaper and wall hangings, including removing all peeling paint. Then, coat the wall you want to paint using white as the base paint.
Prepare the gradation paint you want
To be able to produce gradient paint with good texture and depth, you need to prepare two colors of wall paint. You can use a mix of colors as you wish, but make sure the first color is the lightest paint, while the second color can be a darker color but still in the same color spectrum. Another idea, you can also add a third color to get a wider gradient appearance.
Determine the gradient direction
Once you are sure of the gradient paint combination, you need to determine the direction of the gradient. For example, you can create vertical, horizontal, diagonal or linear directions. Just choose according to your wishes and allow it to be applied to your room. For example, you can try painting the walls from dark to light tones from bottom to top. This will create a wider visual effect in the room.
Create a gradient look
Determining the appearance of the gradation is also important so that the paint displayed does not look messy. For example, for a blue gradation, apply the darker blue first from the bottom to half of the wall. Then, add a lighter blue about 50 cm and then the top part can use white. Smoothly blend the first and second colors to mix them perfectly to create a smooth color transition effect. Finally, do the same for the second and third colors.
