Introduction to the Chalk Paint™ Colour Card

Welcome to the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colour card. This is your base for learning about colour mixing and colour theory in relation to Chalk Paint. To explore our Annie Sloan Wall Paint and Annie Sloan Satin Paint ranges click here and here respectively.

Although an inventor, businesswoman and interiors guru: Annie is first and foremost a painter. Her 7 years of Fine Art study have given her expertise in the fields of colour theory and colour mixing. Her furniture paint is mixable in the same way that artist’s pigments are. This means you can create your perfect shade for every piece of furniture, room, or detail. The experimentation and playfulness of mixing colours brings extra joy to your painting.

With this in mind, Annie has laid out her colour cards in a totally different way to normal paint colour cards. It has been organised around the colour wheel to aid you in creating colour schemes. Annie’s favourite way to use colour is in groupings of three.

In Annie’s book, Colour Recipes for Painted Furniture, she advises using your fingers to mix paints and doing so in very small amounts with teaspoon-sized servings of colours. Once you have determined ratios you can scale up using your smaller mixes as a guideline.
