How to get a two tone effect
It is a very decorative resource that consists of paint the wall using two similar shades, putting one on the top and one on the bottom, so that the wall is divided as if it were a frieze.
The key to this effect is not that the dividing line is perfectly drawn (in fact at the time of painting it is not used body builder tape to be very straight), or that the contrast between the two colors is very strong. Rather it is that the division of the two colors is natural. That's why it's better choose two colors Similar.
To put the idea into practice, you only need two-color paint, rope, chalk, bodybuilder's tape, a brush and a roller. Mark a horizontal line on the wall at the height of your hip holding a string with painter's tape to do it. Paint the top of the wall with the roller and let it dry. Then mark the dividing line again with chalk and trace the lower part along the line with a brush. Then paint the rest of the wall with the roller.

The fact is that it is a great way to give dynamism to a somewhat boring space. And, in addition, it is very simple to do. You only need paint of various shades. You have to use different tones of the same color, from the lightest to the most ocura.
Start by painting the entire wall with the lightest color and the roller and let it dry. Then measure the height of the wall and divide by the number of colors you want to use. I believe that four tones is very good, although you can also paint it with only three.
Mark the division using a string that you have fastened with tape and a chalk. Now paint with the second color from below and up to the marked line. Before the paint dries, blur the border between the two colors with a dry brush.
Repeat the operation as many times as you want to put colors. Of course, always do it from top to bottom and from lighter color to darker color.
