Color Mixing with Chalk Paint®

One of our Facebook friends, Suzi Mitchell wrote us saying she has the Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan colors of English Yellow and Louis Blue.

Suzi asked if mixing them could achieve Duck Egg.

So, we did a little finger painting here for her. We did heavier on the Louis Blue…I am guessing maybe a 4:1 ratio and we achieved a color that is similar. It is definitely NOT an exact match…actually there more of a lighter blue hue to it….but yet, it is similar.

After creating this combination for Suzi, I thought I would write a brief post encouraging you all to not be afraid to dab the tip of your pinkie into some of your left over paint, and mix a couple to see the outcome.

You will enjoy doing this and possibly find, a whole new color to use on a new project.

It is a fun way to play with color mixing if unsure where to start. This tool is not an accurate, exact representation of an outcome- but mathematically it is pretty darn close. Note that your monitor quality does play into that equation. And just remember though- nothing compares to working with your local stockist and playing with real Chalk Paint®. With all that said…I hope you have fun using this Paint Mixer!
