Golden texture. A rich cadmium sunseeker. Artisan Flax Yellow Chalk Wash creates a joyously deep shade of sunflower yellow. Apply the wash over rich ochre or umber shades to create a warm burnished finish, or with a lighter shade base, layer up to achieve a deep mustard seed yellow. Wherever you want the sun, apply Flax Yellow Chalk Wash. Complete your scheme with dusty blue accessories and grass green upholstery. This is a fine art shade for bringing out your inner Expressionist.
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.
