"Arles" Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan
A Deep Golden Yellow
don’t you just love the look of Arles? I especially like it with Dark Wax! Annie Sloan states the inspiration is the rich glowing yellow associated with the town of Arles in the South of France. It is a rich yellow ochre with a hint of orange juice and with Old White added the color is warm and gentle.
The Purple Painted Lady loves this color paired with Provence or Aubusson Blue or Old Violet….when Dark Wax is applied to all – and it will be heaven! (coat with clear wax first and let dry- then apply dark wax) The sample board shown has 2 coats of Arles, then one coat of clear wax across the whole piece – let dry, and then dark wax only over half.) Beautiful!
I had posted a custom Coral recipe on my Facebook page earlier in 2013 using Barcelona Orange as one of the components to create it, but I had a customer write me who already owned Arles and was hoping we could help her as so she could save on money and use the Chalk Paint® she already owned, versus having to buy the Orange too. So- below is a 2nd option for a custom Coral using approximately 4 parts Emperor’s Silk, 2 parts Arles and 1 part Old White. I hope that this was helpful.
Don’t forget when purchasing Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan- to consider purchasing her Clear Wax also. Annie’s paint and wax were created to partner perfectly together! The paint itself will harden but the wax will truly protect it! The wax does completely harden and it becomes hard and is water repellent. It is a wonderful protective finish that you can buff once dry- to the sheen you desire.
