Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan is a unique paint in 30 decorative and historical colors made specifically for painting furniture, floors, “blackboards”, and for giving walls a completely matte and velvety finish.
Please take note that the actual colors may vary slightly from what appears on your computer screen. We have many examples of each color in use in our shop so you can have an accurate idea of what each shade actually looks like.
Adding Old White & Pure White
expands your options!
Our range of colours is not large, but we give you the reins to enlarge the range and for achieving exactly the right tone for you.
If you want to make a color paler, you can add Old White or Pure White. (Old White will help make the color vintage and Pure White will make the color more modern).
Find out roughly the ratio of what you want either by experimenting (use your finger maybe to dab and mix) or by looking on the individual pages on this web site by clicking on the paint swatches. For a small amount of paint you can use a big spoon or for larger amounts use a cup. Two dollops of Old White to one dollop of Provence is a ratio of 2 to 1 making a lovely soft pale slightly aged turquoise like old faded French shutters. Use Pure and the color is cleaner and fresher… more vintage 1950′s!
