Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Swatch Book Part 2 – Shades

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Swatch Book.  Paint Colors + Shades
Shades = Color + Graphite

I like Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Miss Mustard Seed Milk 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

P.S  Pure and Original also makes a chalk based paint called Classico in 140 colors! Its amazing too!

Is there a way to see a larger version of this shades chart? I love seeing the colors mixed with Graphite!

Delynn,
I know thats a problem with showing your images online instead of print. I have to limit the size of the image or it takes too long to load. I probably have a larger version saved on my computer. If I do I will email it to you, Leslie

Hi Shirley,
I’m sorry but I can’t mail you a larger jpeg. When I first started blogging I did mail some but now I can’t keep up with the requests. The good news is that you can download and print anything from the blog including the swatch books. But remember that the accuracy of transferring colors to print can be unpredictable. Use the swatch book as a basic reference but always make your own swatch from the actual paint to get a reliable sample. I was in graphic design for years and going from digital to print with color has so many variables it is hard to control.Thanks for writing and I hope you will still follow my blog,
Leslie xxoo

You talk often of using different colours for shadowing. Can you explain how you do this?

Do you have a swatch book in which you mix colours w Pure White or Old White 2 lighten them? I looked around n I don’t see one…Thanks!

Forgive me but I am confused about your paint books. You had mentioned you have the recipes available for making various colors with the Annie Sloan paint, but I don’t see any written recipes. I am unable to see what is written in your color swatches. It is not clear on the website. Printing the chart does not work either. What am I not getting here? Sorry for my confusion. Thank you Leslie for your time in this matter.

I am going to copy Maggie’s request since it is also mine….

I too would be interested in the written recipes for the various colors.

Thanks,

Cindy,
so sorry you’re having trouble. Try using your zoom to see enlarged images. On the swatch books I used a ratio of, 3:1, 2:1, 1:1, 1:2, color to white, and for shades, color to black (Graphite). Thanks, let me know if you have more questions,

It would be great if those ratios were printed onto the swatches at the top. Could you email the tint & tone chart files to me? They’re not very clear, even when I zoom in. Thanks a bunch!

Hi, Leslie. I’m very confused because in comparing your shades chart with your tints chart (where you are mixing the color and pure white), you give different ratios in the comments section. I thought you mixed them the same way just substituting black for white but your comments indicate that you did them differently. In this chart, which square shows the 1:1 ratio? Also, is the first square the straight color or is it a 3:1 ratio as you say in the comments above?

Is there somewhere on your site that you tell the amount of graphite added to these colors to acheive these shades?
