Again, sorry for the delay, i just saw this.

It's pretty easy to get the finish on the walls.

Start with a white primed wall. The grab your dark paint color. A large brush, and start painting. Vertical strokes, don't saturate the brush too much, and a lot of vertical "scrubbing"motion to get all the spots. And you'll naturally get that mixed translucent look. It's takes some effort to get a consistent level of darkness throughout.

You can even dilute the paint with a glaze and that'l let you work slower and more carefully. I didn't do this though.

It takes a lot of elbow grease.
