Athenian Black Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan


Athenian Black Litre: PreSale ONLY will ship on 9/12/19 – NOTE – your entire order will be held till 9/12/19

Athenian Black is…well, black! A dark, crisp black with no brown or blue undertones. If you usually buy Graphite, adn mix India Ink in to make it darker, this is the color for you! You won’t have to mix to get a true black anymore. This color goes with EVERYTHING, and if you have a modern decor, this suites you perfectly. Introducing Athenian Black, 
Annie shares, “A true opaque black packed with pigment to give you that impenetrable colour like the black used by the Ancient Greeks to render silhouetted figures on their pottery (of which there is a particularly outstanding collection here at the @AshmoleanMuseum in Oxford). I’m so excited to have a true and pure black. I love Graphite, but this one take centre stage as my darkest Chalk Paint® colour… and I love the drama.”

Oxford Navy is a true, dark navy color. Some may even perceive it as black, but it is not. And when next to black, it is obvious…but it is a dark color. Similar to Napoleonic Blue, but much darker! We see this color paired with neutral colors like Paris Grey, Chicago Grey, and Old White, but also with fun colors, like Scandinavian Pink and Arles!! Trish, The Purple Painted Lady loves Oxford Navy with Annie’s White Wax over it.

Update on the IOD Transfers on our Shop’s Front Glass Door (How is it holding up?)

We really love using Iron Orchid Design Transfers. So much so, we are game to try them anywhere. So much so, when we saw others using them on their shop’d entrance doors, we thought…..we need to do that too!

So, I wanted to do an update regarding the Iron Orchid Design Transfers that we have on our glass doors in the front of our Macedon, New York shop. Below are photos of when we first applied the transfers and then, photos I took last week.

Click HERE to watch a YouTube Video showing us applying the transfers.

I have to look back at exactly when we applied these but it must’ve been some time in early May of this year…2019. Below is a photo taken on the day we did the windows. Notice how vibrant the colors are on the glass.

Courtney and Hannah applied the transfers to the glass on the exterior side of the doors. That is Hannah on the left and Courtney on the right. Two crazy women – who fit right in at The Purple Painted Lady. (side note here- I (Trish) am so grateful for everyone who is on our team. TPPL would not exist without each and everyone of them!)

Normally, I would think most people would apply the transfer on the inside pane of glass, but it actually works out best for us on the outside because we bring a lot of different items …including metal artwork out from our store every morning and set them up on the sidewalk ……we then bring it all back in at night. (Yes…it’s a hassle but it creates cute curb appeal~LOL) The side of the door that gets the most “WEAR & tear” would’ve been the interior side. We have an overhang in our entrance so the doors are fairly protected from direct weather. The adhesion of the transfers has held up awesome. In fact, I don’t have any doubt that there would ever be an issue regarding that. The only caveat I will share is that the color of the transfers have faded.

Below is a photo that I took in late July of 2019. Can you see how the bright red and colors have faded?

Again…keep in mind- the transfers are meant to be used on furniture or walls or mirrors or any home decor….inside your home.

Of course, many others push the envelope and put the transfers on the exterior of their entrance doors and we thought that was a great idea and followed suit. I just want to make sure that you’re aware that if you try to do this also, you’ll still be impressed but that the color….. if vibrant in the transfer, will ultimately fade because of the UV rays of the sun. I would not let this discourage you because the design In images are beautiful and still make a big impact. At the purple painted Lady, we sell all of the IOD products and transfers. And, we are always available to answer your questions. If you ever stop at the store or write us and don’t get a response, please don’t take it in a negative way. We are fairly busy and try to help as many people as possible. Please just send another message or text or call our store number. If you’re in the shop, just wave and say I need help. We are always available!

Applying IOD Transfers to Our Shop’s Glass Front Doors

One of our sister stockists inspired us to spruce up our shop by applying Iron Orchid Designs Decor Transfers to our front doors! This was such an easy way to totally transform the first thing our customers see in our shop. Typically, transfers are used over a painted, or even unpainted, piece of furniture, and then sealed. The IOD Sisters say they prefer using wax to seal their transfers…and so do we! On glass, however, no sealant is required! We are eager to see how the transfers will hold up through the New York winters, seeing as how they are applied on the exterior of our glass doors. So far, they have been on for a couple months and they look just as good as the first day they were applied!

One of the great things about IOD Transfers is they do not have to be used exactly how they are printed. That means, you can cut the piece of acetate the designs are on and place different areas in different orientations, which is exactly what we did on our doors! We used multiple transfers in multiple different ways….Here is a list of the transfers that were used:

Midnight Garden Decor Transfer (24″x33″) :
https://shop.thepurplepaintedlady.com/Midnight-Garden-Decor-Transfer-24×33-_p_987.html

The main transfer we used was Midnight Garden. We cut this transfer right down the middle, and placed one half on one side of the doors, and the other half on the other side! Then we used the other two transfers, Wildflower Botanicals and Ladies in Waiting as “fillers” for the remainder of the empty space on the doors. These transfers are great because multiple people could use the same transfer, but each project would look totally unique!

Applying Transfers to Glass: This application can take a little more patience than applying a transfer onto a painted surface. Glass is not as porous of a surface, so we had to apply a bit more pressure to allow the transfers to fully adhere to our doors!

Here is a photo of the finished product! See below for the full video on how we completed this project.

NOTE – some transfers, like the close-up shown below, are already slightly distressed! This allows for a naturally distressed look without having to sand….In those areas your glass, or paint color, will show through.
