FYI! I feel that this color is more of chartreuse! There is a slight-slight green to it!
SO TAKE NOTE...By Mixing Arles and English Yellow 1:1 - they are fabulous together??. By mixing these 2 colors in equal amounts, it takes all the green out.
Annie Sloan explains English Yellow as: "This clean yellow was particularly popular in English 18th Century decoration inspired by hand painted Chinese wallpaper and the development of Chrome Yellow pigment. It was the first non earthy yellow and at first would be very expensive. In the 1950s this yellow became popular as a strong primrose. It can be mixed with Antibes Green to make lime green."
Those of you who like to custom mix colors - know we needed this color! With this new bright yellow, you can now make true brown colors. Mix Primer Red and English Yellow to get a nice brown. I show an example below with a little Graphite added. Our Virtual Color Mixer here on our website is a great tool to experiment with when creating custom colors. Click HERE for the Color Mixer.

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.
