One to two coats of paint, brushed on thin will do it.   The paint finish can be light sanded with a 180-220 grit paper to quickly refine the finish (knocks down any brush strokes, etc).  You can also take a damp rag and rub your edges to reveal your undercolor.  Do all this fiddling BEFORE you seal the paint…

LIBERTY – such a soft,  pale celery green

SPACIOUS SKIES – light light light blue

This one’s hard to photograph –   Spacious Skies is really light,  almost like one of the whites, but next to other colors you can see it definitely has a hint of blue to it
