I need paint/glaze recipe for a Golden Tuscan type faux finish

Ok.. I have decided to give up and start over. I was going for a golden aged type finish on my walls and ended up with orange. ( See Link)

http://www.tropicaldiva.com/house/index1.htm

I started out with a very nice yellow and then put a brown glaze on it . I really liked the overall finished look but the orange is NOT what I had in mind. Aparently the brown had too much red in it. OK so here's what I'm asking. Instead of trying to come up with my own recipe and paint mixture (which obviously didn't work the first time) I thought I'd ask to see if any of you have done what I have described and are happy with the results. If so May I have your recipe!?!?!?!?

My thoughts are to start out with a softer perhaps lighter yellow and use a glaze but not sure of the color.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Looking at your pics, I would first try "toning" the walls down using a glaze/wash of lavender. It will soften the orange down.

I have done my walls this way by painting a soft yellow and then using a glaze made with Behr Faux Glazing Liquid and tinting with burnt umber craft paint. It isn't orange at all.

Did you ever figure out the two colors needed?

I am trying to do the same thing...a golden tuscan look. Thanks.
