Mixing it up with Pearl Plaster & Chalk Paint®

I mentioned in an earlier post that Artisan Enhancements Pearl Plaster is now available at Sea Rose Cottage.  Learn more about the magic of Pearl Plaster or purchase here.

Pearl Plaster adds a lustrous, pearlescent quality to furniture and wall finishes.  In its natural state, its shimmery pearl color is just fabulous!

What is also fun about Pearl Plaster is that you can tint it with Chalk Paint® too!  The general rule of thumb is to use 10-15% Chalk Paint® to Pearl Plaster.  Be careful not to thin it down too much.

I was working on a project over the weekend and ended up tinting the Pearl Plaster with a custom mix of French Linen & Paris Grey Chalk Paint®.  The color had a modern zinc-like feel.

After I saw the result,  I became curious about the many Pearl Plaster color variations that can be created with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and her rich color palette.

 

While I didn’t mix all of Annie’s 30 gorgeous colors with the Pearl Plaster, I did pick out a few of the more saturated ones.

Like Aubusson Blue and Florence…

Provence and Emile

and Graphite and Old Violet.

I used 1 Part Chalk Paint to 10 Parts Pearl Plaster for my mixes.

I love the beautiful shimmering light blue-grey of Aubusson Blue  & Pearl Plaster.
 The light sparkling spa-green color created with Provence is just exquisite,

and with Graphite, Pearl Plaster creates a wonderful modern silver-grey finish.


Mixing it up with Pearl Plaster and Chalk Paint® is a great way to extend your metallic color range!

How would you mix it up?
