My all time favorite color in our Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan line is Aubusson Blue.  I think it is a sophisticated color that add depth and character.  Here are a couple pieces we painted in straight out of the can Aubusson blue.



I really love mixing Aubusson and so I wanted to share with you a few recipes, Annie recommends Old White and Aubusson to make a lovely color called Stockholm.

ADD OLD WHITE -to make ‘Stockholm’ 
Add 8 parts of Old White to 1 part of Aubusson Blue to make STOCKHOLM, a sophisticated deep grey blue found in traditional Swedish decoration

I really love mixing Florence with Aubusson (50/50) mix.


I hope this inspires you to think outside of the 30 Chalk Paint colors we have and make a few of your own!  If you have a before & after project email them to press@stylishpatina.com we would love to share them on the blog!

Come and see us at ROUGH LUXE MARKET this weekend Fri-Sun!

    Love the looks!! However, when it comes to mixing Aubusson Blue and Old White, you stated 8 parts to 1 part. I don’t know what part means, a cup? Thanks for helping this less than stellar math student. 🙂

    I agree with you, Kelly. I never get tired of Aubusson. I’ve painted a couple of wood chests with Aubusson and used varying amounts of dark wax. Gorgeous! I even painted my rough old workbench Aubusson!
