We have 33* colors in the Chalk Paint® range from soft and pale to bright and strong. Annie Sloan’s carefully selected range of colours is hugely flexible as you can mix colours together to extend the range and create endless possibilities.
If you want to make a color paler then add Old White or Pure White . Old White will give the color a softer vintage feel, and Pure will make the color more modern sleek and sexy look.
Find out roughly what ratio you need by experimenting – you could use you fingers to dab and mix colours, or a teaspoon to make small amounts. For larger amounts you could use a cup or even a tin as a measure. Consider taking a color mixing workshop at on the purple couch…you would have so much fun….
Start with a dollop of your chosen colour, slowly adding the Old White or Pure. A dollop of Provence and two dollops of Old White gives you a ratio of 1 to 2, making a lovely soft pale slightly aged turquoise like old faded French shutters. Use Pure and the colour is cleaner and fresher, giving a more vintage 1950’s look!
It’s useful to keep a sample of the colors you make in your Annie Sloan Work Book, just incase you want to recreate them.
