Our Paint Range
Inspired by a Nordic-French palette, we currently offer a range of thirty six colours - however, given they can be mixed together, the possibilities are endless. Mixing chalk paint colours allows you to create the perfect hue for your project, however we advise you test a good sized area especially if painting a wall and observe the result for at least 24 hours preferably in bright sunlight to make sure you are happy. Also ensure you mix enough of the paint to complete your planned project, and record the recipe for the future.
Please do remember the swatches give you an approximate idea of the colour, for a true representation, please refer to our hand-painted Paint Chart here. Click a swatch to view paint tin size options, or click here to view the full range.
