Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Green Custom Color Swatches

Here is a new page in my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Color Swatch Book. It combines the color cards  for the additional green colors you can mix, by using Antibes Green + English Yellow, Antibes Green+ Arles and Florence + English Yellow, and Florence + Arles. It also shows the results when these new custom colors are blended with varying amounts of Pure White to make tints.

I physically mixed these colors and scanned them into my computer from my project and color journals. The colors are accurate, as much as they can be. Remember, however, actual paint samples look different than those on a computer display. The names for these additional green colors are mine and not official Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors, although I did use ASCP to create them.  The numbers on each color card represent the equal proportion of each color to the other.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

I like Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for my craft and furniture projects, but for walls nothing compares to Pure & Original Fresco Lime Paint. I love the natural variations of shades and tones the lime creates within one paint color. You have to see how gorgeous it is! Checkout my most recent interior design make overs with Fresco. It can be purchased online at www.502paint.com

Thanks for posting this chart — I’ve found many things around the house that need to be refreshed with new colors. (Starting with dining room chairs, fireplace, coffee table, martha jefferson end tables.) I’m using your chart to select a starter palette for these projects. If all goes well, the kitchen cabinets are next.

For some reason this chart is easy for me to follow along and understand the results. Do you have other charts in this format for other color combinations?

Mary,
Hi. I’m working on custom pinks right now. Hopefully I’ll have it up soon. Thanks, I also agree it is a better format than my earlier charts

I love the sage green you came up with and really want to paint my cabinets that color. My husband isn’t as certain as me so he is making me do something smaller first. I decided my desk needs a makeover and it is the same wood as the cabinets which makes it the perfect test subject. So I ordered the necessary Annie Sloan paint colors (English Yellow and Florence) and mixed them exactly 2:1, but the color I achieved was less sage green and more lime green. I don’t know what went wrong and could continue wasting paint until I run out and have to order more, or I could just ask for help or suggestions. Any advice? Thank you in advance for any suggestions you may have.

Dear Leslie,
I want to use one of you paint colors to paint some kitchen chairs but can’t quite make out how much white you added to get the color. The color is made by 1 part antibes green and 1 part arles mixed with white. It is the second to lightest color. Could you please tell me how much white to add?
