Duck Egg and Louis Blue

Duck Egg and Louis Blue

 

A petite feminine vanity ( found on Eloquence, Inc), is the inspiration for a soft blue and pale green color palette. To create a finish like this use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® and layer the colors. Tints can be made of Duck Egg and Louis Blue by mixing in a little Old White. Gently wash  Paris Grey over the blues and accent the stylish details with Old White. A perfect combination for a vintage vanity.

Louis Blue and Duck Egg Blue are two of Annie’s most popular colors. For more inspiration check out these posts you may have missed. Vintage Chest in Hues of Louis Blue,  Gustavian Blue, and  The Blues

Hi Leslie,
I love following your work! Out of all the blogs there are on chalk paint yours is the best!!!
I have a question regarding painting fabric with ASCP. I tried a piece of black leather and it took well but I was worried that it might come off if it got wet, so I put some water on it and the color ran. Wondering about regular fabric like cotton etc. Is there a seal that needs to go on in order to keep it in tack and also from coming off on your dress if you sit on it.??? Thanks again Leslie

Toni,
Most people seal it with clear wax when using Chalk Paint on fabric. Once you do that it shouldn’t run or rub off on clothing. Thanks,
Leslie

but what does the wax do to your clothes if you sit on it or if the item touches something?

As long as you wait a couple of days for it to dry it shouldn’t hurt your clothes. Do a test with a cloth first but it should be fine

Do you have a video demonstrating this technique? I’m always unclear about whether the reason for doing layering the colors is so one will be seen under the other when you distress the piece or whether it is to alter the color. When you make your tints by adding the Old White, do you also thin the paint? I assume the wash of Paris Grey is thinned with water, but do you also wipe it after you apply it? Thanks for sharing!
