This bright pure red is like the red silk lining of a jacket, because of the way it looks we love it used as a interior of a cupboard or drawer. I especially love it with dark wax (see my photo above.) I also love it for accenting! Use it inside a cabinet or a drawer for a fun unexpected pop of color!

Annie Sloan's Emperor's Silk is a great base color in your painting pantry for mixing other Chalk Paint® colors into! For example:
Coral Chalk Paint®: Mix equal amounts of Pure White & Emperor's Silk and half amount of Scandinavian Pink for a pretty pink. Then to achieve coral add equal amounts of Barcelona Orange.
Baby Pink Chalk Paint®: Mix a few drops of Emperor's Silk into Old White
Berry Chalk Paint®: Equal amounts Emperor's Silk and Emile
Dark Purple Chalk Paint®: Mix equal amounts of Emperor's Silk with Napoleonic Blue.
Something to understand about "red" paint- and I am speaking generically here- no matter the type of paint or the brand.... the color red, is a translucent pigment that always takes multiple coats to get that rich, deep saturated color. It is notorious for that. Sometimes I Will apply a coat of Annie's Primer Red first and then paint the Emperor Silk over that- to help with the richness.
Know that if painting with "red" you may need to apply three coats- so base your paint needs on that.
Don't forget when purchasing Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan- to consider purchasing her Clear Wax also. Annie's paint and wax were created to partner perfectly together! The paint itself will harden but the wax will truly protect it! The wax does completely harden and it becomes hard and is water repellent. It is a wonderful protective finish that you can buff once dry- to the sheen you desire.

We are sorry – there are NO RETURNs when it comes to paint. You will find this for every stockist. Think about it- would you ever want a quart of paint sent to you - that was shipped to someone else prior? We eliminate any potential issues with this policy.
With that said- we apologize for any issues this may cause. Choose wisely and do not spontaneously purchase a color if unsure. OK? In fact- if you need help in deciding- ask us. We are here to help you! : )
