Hi Beth,
This was actually an inspiration photo that I used for several pieces. It is a great example of how you can use Chalk Paint to get this look. Yes, these are the colors I used, left to right, usually only the 1st color solidly painted, in this case Napoleonic Blue. The rest of the colors are used in varying amounts, with Louis Blue being dominant. Although at first glance it looks light blue, to get an authentic looking patina several colors are used to create depth. I used this photo to show that it is very easy to get this beautiful finish. Thanks for commenting.

So, you first painted a solid layer of Napoleon Blue , then a light layer of each of the other colors on the card and in what order?
