Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan – how to make it a darker Navy (and other colors)

You know, there is a reason that Annie Sloan chooses to not have 57 colors or 75 colors in her paint spectrum. And that is because Annie knows her colors- and from her palette of selected colors we do offer- you can mix almost any custom color you would like.

One color that is a must to have is Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. It is a deep true blue that is the color of fresh picked blueberries- perfect for creating the Union Jack flag!

Annie Sloan’s Napoleonic Blue is a wonderful color to have in your painting tool box essentials since it is – by default – a primary color!

With all of these “color mixing” ideas- I wanted to make sure you knew about the virtual color mixing tool available on our website. With permission from Annie Sloan, the “Mr. Purple Painted Lady” wrote the proprietary program for the Paint Mixer. It is meant to be a playful tool that allows you to get an idea of what a custom color will look like when you mix multiple Chalk Paint® colors. This tool is not an accurate, exact representation of an outcome- but mathematically it is pretty darn close. 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!
