Hello English Yellow!

Sea Rose Cottage is happy to welcome Annie Sloan’s English Yellow to the historic collection of Chalk Paint® colors!

According to Annie Sloan, this clean yellow first appeared with the development of chrome yellow pigment in the 1700′s.

It was the first non-earthy yellow and was particularly popular in English 18th Century decoration.  The color is also inspired by hand-painted Chinese wallpaper.  In the 1950s this yellow became popular as a strong primrose.

English Yellow can be mixed with Antibes Green Chalk Paint® to make lime green and a sharper yellow.

Annie combines it with her other paint colors (above) to make some “pretty stunning bright modern color combinations.”

It can also be mixed with Old White or Pure White to lighten.  Below is a mixture of equal parts English Yellow to Old White Chalk Paint® or a 1:1 ratio.

Starting with English Yellow, and then adding increasing amounts of Old White (1:1, 1:2, 1:3, & 1:4), allows you to create a beautiful extended color range using this pigment-rich color.

English Yellow is a bright, happy color and a great addition to Annie Sloan’s color palette!

Currently English Yellow can be purchased by the quart, 4 ounce sample sizes are expected to be available for purchase in the US by late summer. We will be adding English Yellow to our online store offerings shortly.  In the meantime, if you want to say hello to English Yellow for your next project, please use the Add to Cart button below.
