Default Toning Down Rocks

I've just finished painting my rocks for the pool and part of a rocky outcrop (no pics - my batteries are dead ), and the coulours are way too bright. I want to go for a southern look, but keep the coulour in them.

What's the best way to tone them down - white emulsion?

Thanks,

Chalks are very dry looking. That might help.
