Sunday, April 22, 2012, not the vegetable!

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

What custom colors are you creating with Chalk Paint®
I can't wait to see them!  Post your creations on my Facebook page, or tweet me at Carter's Cottage#AnnieSloanPaint!
