Old Violet

An old desk from an Oxford college has been painted using Old Violet mixed in places with a little Burgundian Red a color no longer in our range but may be returning. Some Emperors Silk or Primer Red could be used instead, as the point is to just make the surface less flat looking. The edges of the drawers are Old White and the interior is painted in Emperor's Silk.

Old VioletLike deep Parma violets or blue lavender it is a wonderful 18th century color used for coloring the inside of furniture- like the lining of a jacket – or for using with as the base with Paris Grey on top and distressed.
