Interested in making a teal using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan? If you are by one of our shops – you can always stop in and experiment mixing using our paint bar. Otherwise- another option is using our virtual color mixing tool that is on-line HERE. This software tool allows you to select up to three colors and specify different ratios to see a hypothetical mixture of what the mix outcome would like.
Otherwise, here are some “teal” color recipe ideas to get you started. Remember, Chalk Paint® is an artisan paint and Annie created it for you to use, to experiment with and to enjoy!
* Old Ochre and Florence make a nice Tiffany Blue- some of our customers call that teal.
* 3 parts Aubusson Blue and 1 part Antibes Green. (but we encourage you to play with various amounts because the created colors are beautiful)
Once you create your customer color – you can then lighten it using Pure White

I always find it interesting what the forecasted “in” colors will be for the upcoming year. I immediately think about the scene in The Devil Wears Prada when Miranda Priestly explains to Andrea Sachs on how the “blue” sweater she is casually wearing – is actually called cerulean blue and that it was selected by a team of color experts a few years prior – and Andrea’s sweater- although purchased at probably . Have you seen this scene?
Anyway- Pantone Color Institute always releases their prediction on which will be the hot colors in fashion – which Miranda Priestly explained- also trickles down into other commodities, such as home goods. Or- in my world, paint colors for walls or furniture. When I look at the colors below- I start to think about how Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan colors pair up.
