Welcome to our NEW WEEKLY SERIES: Chalk Paint Color Theory. Every Monday, we will be featuring a different Annie Sloan Chalk Paint color. We want to give you the background of how the color was developed, show you what you can do with it, and give examples of different pieces painted with the color.
Also, as a special treat, the color will be on sale for the entire week!
Yup, can't beat that, a SALE on Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!
First up, Emperor's Silk.
Emperor's Silk is a vibrant, rich red. It is stunning with a great deal of impact. This bright, clear, rich red is the color of China. It signifies reunion, health, happiness, harmony, peace and prosperity. Try painting one piece in a room with this stunning color. It can also be used as an interior of a cabinet or drawer, like the red silk lining of a jacket.
You can adjust the color by adding Old White to make a bright, strong, exotic flowery pink or the pinks from Indonesia.
