Mixing a Custom Colour using Chalk Paint

I LOVE LOVE LOVE painting people’s furniture for them.  Bringing an old piece back to life is awesome, especially when it’s a sentimental piece… but 99% of the time, I’m painting the pieces either white or black.  Needless to say, it does get a tad boring every now and then…

Recently, I had a new customer bring me an old dresser she wanted done for her new baby girl’s nursery… and she wanted it HOT PINK!!! Yea… a colour 😉  Annie Sloan doesn’t make a hot pink, so I custom mixed a colour to acheive the look I was going for…
2 parts Old White to 1 part Emperor’s Silk
The key to making a custom colour is lots of practice.  Grab a blank sheet of paper and start mixing, being sure to record your recipe along the way.

I had a hard time getting a good pic of the pink I mixed.  My house is dark and I don’t get a lot of natural light, but you get the idea!!
