All right, I didn't know where to post this so here goes:
I've been seeing lots of aquariums (mainly nature-styles) that have a white background and white fine sand. The eventual look looks REALLY pleasing to my eyes, and I now wanna make one of these nice backgrounds.
I know lots of guys just have a white wall behind the tank and this gives the nice look, but what to do if you have a stripped goldish wall? I was first thinking of painting/getting a pure-white wallpaper, but how do I create the pleasing shady parts?
Trying to set up a nature tank at the moment, will be busy for a while...
