Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Color Swatch Book is a digital representation of my own hand painted color samples. Each color was mixed with varying amounts of water. The most opaque color (left swatch) was mixed with the recommended ratio of 1 part paint to 1 part water. The subsequent swatches were made with increasing amounts of water, with the far right swatch representing a wash (approx 3 parts water to 1 part paint). No colors were mixed together and neither white (Ironstone) nor black (Typewriter) were added to make tints or shades.
Although each of the 18 colors was mixed and painted on watercolor paper and scanned into my computer, the colors you see here may vary from the actual paint samples. This is due to the difference in computer screens, software programs, and color calibration. You can download and print any of my swatch books, including this one, but remember your colors may look different ( printers and ink vary tremendously too). Use these as a basic reference only and always refer to an actual painted sample to make a color decision.
If you want to compare these colors to my color swatches of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® you can find more color studies by clicking on the Tools tab or referring to my posts ASCP Colors + Tints and ASCP Colors + Shades.
