Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
EDIT 11/26/11: I re-did and re-renamed the collection files, correctly this time. Rather than re-upload all of the color card individual RARs, I just RARed the fixed collection files into one download. If you download individual color cards in this set (as opposed to just downloading everything) and you use the collection files, you'll want to download the fixed ones and then keep only the files for the card(s) you downloaded. My apologies again for screwing that up.

EDIT 11/21/11: Whoops! In looking at these, I realized that I totally FUBARed the renaming of the collection files. *headdesk* This isn't really a problem if you downloaded the "All" file, but if you downloaded individual cards of these, the included collection file(s) is/are probably not the right one(s). I'm so sorry! I will fix this ASAP. Again, my apologies. Also, for interested parties, four sets of these walls have now been uploaded to my LJ and, if I have time before my next student arrives, I'm going to slap a fifth one up there before I'm offline for the day.

PLEASE NOTE: This will be the last of these plaster sets that I'm going to upload to MTS. Going forward, I'll be putting them exclusively on my LJ. It's not that I have anything against MTS at all, of course; it's just that these sets are very labor intensive to prepare for MTS purposes, and quite honestly I don't often feel like doing it. Thus, for those of you who like these, you're getting them very slowly. Putting them on my own journal means that the process will be much easier on me, and that means that those of you who like these sets will get them a lot faster. So, if you want all of them, keep an eye out over there, not here on MTS.

Anyway, these are the Misted Greens, which have a nice range from cool blue-greens to warm green-yellows. Although I do wonder if the person who came up with these color names (which isn't me, by the way; it's someone who works for whatever company makes Valspar paints ) has ever seen, for example, a spear of asparagus or a sprig of parsley because those shades are waaaaaay too yellow to bear that name. But it is what it is.

If you haven't looked at one of these sets before and you're wondering what the hell I'm doing and how this project is organized, go read the description on, for instance, this set.

For those of you who do know the drill already, here are the "color cards" for the Misted Greens:

As a sample, here are the six colors of Card 5, on interior walls:

For comparison's sake, a pic of the same six colors on a sunny-side exterior wall is attached. That way, you can see how the same color looks in each kind of light because there is quite a difference.

Thanks for having a look, and I hope that you might find these useful.

So pretty. Must not play sims, must prepare for Thanksgiving. But I know at least two houses that need these.

This entire project is amazing! The colors are gorgeous and it's hard to choose only a few of each set.
I'll stop by on your LJ more often!
Thank you very much!

Ooh! I love these! Cards 4 - 7 are my favourites, but like SimCeleste said above, it's hard to choose (despite my DL folder's groaning). And you know I'm a plaster-o-holic, so I'll avidly be following your LJ!

I just like all these different shades, and some of these recolors you don't see very often elsewhere. Thank you!
