In October, 2014, Annie Sloan introduced the newest color to her palette of Chalk Paint® ~ …..it is …..Burgundy.
The Purple Painted Lady sells Chalk Paint at $34.95 per quart and ships same day!
The Purple Painted Lady has found Burgundy to be interesting, in that the color appears to almost be like a bright berry color when wet, but once dry, it deepens and is a significantly richer color. Check out the difference between the paint stick and the paint lid shown above.
We love this paired with both the clear and dark wax, but using dark wax deepens the color even more.
The images below shows it sandwiched between Emperor’s Silk and Primer Red as to understand the difference between them. Annie Sloan defines this color as a rich deep warm red the color of dark cherries. Most of Annie’s colors are 18th and 20th century inspired but this one comes from the 19th century when the discovery of Alizarin Crimson made this color possible for the first time to a large number of people.
Burgundy is a wonderful color to try mixing with others you may already have. Make a deep purple by mixing Burgundy with Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. On the left of the image, can you see how the Burgundy dries darker and deeper compared to when it is wet?
