Natural vivianite. An ocean blue rippling with texture. Artisan Blue Ochre Chalk Wash metamorphosises with the base colour and application technique that you choose to apply it with. Its dark iron blue colouring has a grey tone that brings warmth to the inky deep of its shade, becoming a creative playground of exploration with contrast and texture. Use large sweeping brush strokes to create oceanic movement or use a stippling effect that undulates with the light for a dense organic feel.
Best applied over a base coat of Craig & Rose 1829 Chalky Emulsion paint. Choose a contrasting base colour for a bold effect or pair with a similar shade for a more understated look.
Preparation and Application: Details on how best to prep your surfaces and apply this paint can be found in our Artisan Chalk Wash How-To Guide or in our Chalk Wash Technical Data Sheet here.
Method of Application: There are several different methods of application that can be used to apply Chalk Wash, ensure you have selected and researched your chosen method before beginning your project. Make sure that your base paint colour has dried for at least 4 hours before applying this effect. Apply in blocks of roughly 1sqm at a time.
Please note that it is best not to apply more than one coat as this may lessen the translucent effect of this Chalk Wash effect.
