from the frequently useful archlinux wiki:
! Xresources file
! URxvt*shading: 0 to 99 darkens, 101 to 200 lightens
Using the URxvt*background setting exemplified above instead of
URxvt*shading will also work.
Note: Avoid using shading if you have a URxvt.tintColor set. Use
a different tintColor instead.
See that last note? It's probably important.
