Totally Plastered: The Misted Reds

In this download and in its eventual 29 "sister" downloads, you will find a ton of plaster walls. More than you will ever want/need, guaranteed. I didn't originally make these for The Sims. I made them for an architectural drafting program. But it wasn't hard to convert them, and I actually ended up finding them useful. I figured that I might as well share, in case anyone else might find any of them useful.

So...I will eventually give you 1,620 colors of Valspar Paint's Ultra Premium line. The colors are on a fairly subtle plaster texture created from sampling photos of the walls of my living room. I'll be uploading the colors in their color families, which consist of 54 colors each. There will eventually be 30 downloads, for a total of, as I said, 1,620 colors. (Whew!) This download will give you the 54 members of the Misted Red family, consisting mostly of purples, lavenders, a few pinks, and a few actual reds.

I have set up this download (and will set up the others to come) in the way that I use these walls, personally. You can download all of the colors in the family if you happen to want all of them for some insane reason. But more practically, you can selectively download them in far more useful "color cards" of six colors each. The colors on a given card are related to each other and therefore work well together. (With the exception of Card 9 in each set, which in real life are meant to be accent colors. For Sims purposes, I think they tend to look nice as exterior colors, if you like dark, rich exterior colors.) Each rar file also contains a collection file for those colors that are included in that particular download, so that you can find these easily when you want them. The "All Colors" download contains a collection file for all 54 of the colors together, but I've also included the collection files for the individual color cards as well, so that you can find them that way, too. So in that download, there are a total of 10 collection files
included in addition to the 54 walls. The other downloads only have the collection file for that particular color card. (NOTE: The collection files go in your "Collections" folder, NOT your "Downloads" folder!)

So, here are the "color cards" for the Misted Reds:

To give you an idea of how these walls look in-game, here is one of the colors "in action" on the sunny side of a wall:
(More similar pics are attached below. Sorry, but I'm not about to make pics of all 54 colors.)

You mean I'm supposed to choose between all these great walls? I can't do that! It's impossible! (And you know I like plaster. ) Then again, having 1,620 recols (1,620! Yowza!!) is a little extreme even for me, so I might have to, eventually. Not right now, though.

Thank you for these wonderful walls - and even more thank you for the collection files!

Edit: Oh, and I just love the names! They add to the wonderful-ness. *nods*

I love the Totally Plastered series -- it's great for my old farmhouses. I know it's supposed to be plaster but it can pass for paint on a rough wall. Can't wait for more colours!

The rational, sane part of my mind is telling me that I don't need a thousand shades of plaster.

...And the other parts are telling me that I do.
