A fellow blogger friend mentioned to me about creating a deep Eggplant color. I pondered the thought, and said yeah, we need that lovely hue! And, no further did the thought go. Then, my fellow blogger friend asked me again....and I said it would be great for her to mix it up! And yet again, no further did the thought go. Then one day, I decided to amuse my sweet friend, and I started playing around with Emperors Silk & Napoleonic Blue...sent me straight to my sophomore year of high school when I had to dress up in a gawdy raisin colored sack and dance to "I Heard it Thru the Grapevine"...Oh how I digress~
After pondering how to deepen the color to make it truly more eggplant like. I decided to add Graphite. Getting close...but still not quite right. Hum...add more Graphite, or Paris Grey...Graphite!
Oohhh! Liked it, but still wanted it darker.
A few more spoons of Graphite and Viola! EGGPLANT!
Yes, this is just a piece of trim I painted. But now that I have the recipe for this luxe hue, I can recreate it at anytime!
Ready for the recipe?
1 part Emperor's Silk
1 part Napoleonic Blue
3 parts Graphite
