If you use a wall with layers, you can assign different materials and colors to each of the interior and exterior finish layers. On the exterior for example you may have stucco and you can assign this layer a material. On the interior if you have wall board you can also assign that a material. If you have two colors of the same material it gets a bit more tricky. You could have different wall types for each of the different colors of materials, or you can use the Revit paint tool to simply paint a wall a different color. If you only want a region of a wall a different color, then using the split face tool in conjuntion with the paint tool may be the best answer. The methodology you employ will depend on what the final result you want is. If all you are looking to do is make somethng look correct for rendering purposes the paint method will work fine. If you want to get an accurate schedule of each finish type, then you will have to use the full modeling method. HTH Tom

You could also make a wall type with the core out of two layers side by side. it would look like one layer if it was the same color, but just make one layer a different color/material..
