    Warm whites, I'd go with English uniform. Or any nice warm brown colour, avoid green, blue or greys. Brrrrrrrrrrr! Too cold.:eek:

    Dear dim, indeed most of us when starting, varnishes, white with the first problem we had was how to illuminate the white after our main was white.! ekie is exactly the mistake we made. We want to show something that when finished, will be a white cloth, lighted and shaded. To show. Therefore never use as the basic white. We use a color, in shades very close to white but not white. A very light beige or a very light gray .. . We will be able to enlighten us using the basic and white and shades using our basic and a darker gray or dark brown one tonne.

    I hope to help you
