Chalk Paint® Sample Pots....GLORIOUS Sample Pots (1/2 cup each...meaning 4 ounces of paint) in all 33 colors are available.
Primer Red is a brownish, barn red. Since red earth pigments were plentiful and relatively easy to come by centuries ago, and only people with significant wealth had the funds to paint their interior or exteriors- left over paint was always saved and dumped into a community bucket- that the painter would use to "prime" for his next job. After mixing many left over colors from various paint jobs- all with a similar earthy color to them - you would get a simial color to this. So, this color is often associated with the color for priming furniture and as the base coat for gilding. It is a wonderful color on its own or as a base for other colors particularly when distressing. Annie Sloan's Primer Red is stunning with Dark Wax! I love to pair it with Graphite, as shown on the Bombay dresser below.
Primer Red is a great color to have as a staple in your painting pantry since "red" is one of the primary colors. This means it is a base for mixing with other colors to achieve custom colors. For instance:
Custom Color of Deep Purple or Dark Plum Chalk Paint®: Mix 2 parts Primer Red with 1 part Graphite
Custom Color of Aubergine/Eggplant Chalk Paint®: Mix 2 parts Primer Red with 1 part Florence

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!
