Duck Egg Chalk Paint® – Shut The Front Door!

I love this vintage door painted by Laura Campagna Emond using Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.

Duck Egg is a beautiful color….. The crazy thing is…..Trish, The Purple Painted Lady has the SAME door in her home!

Trish’s house was built in the late 1880’s….. If you have a vintage door- share it below with us!!!!!

(*Duck Egg is a GREENISH SOFT BLUE! If you are looking for a “baby blue” – you want to purchase Louis Blue. Click here for Louis Blue=>

Again Duck Egg is a greenish soft blue reminiscent of Rococo French and Swedish interiors. It looks wonderful and fresh with Old White. We also love it distressed when it is used over Chateau Grey.

This color is definitely a color you would want to add to your suite of colors if you love French Country. Pair it with Arles, add some Dark Wax and you have a killer combination!

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!
