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.

We ship orders Monday through Friday...almost always same day that you place your order too!
The 4 ounce sample pot can cover between 14 and 17 square feet of surface. That equates to about 3 dining chairs...maybe more depending on how thick you apply your paint and how many coats you need. And actually if you thin it with a little water ~ it will go even further!
So, if you want to try a little Chalk Paint® first...or just need a small amount of color to accent a piece...or have a small piece to paint - than these are for you!
