Using a mix mat or a clean piece of paper, this is the fun bit and a bit like being back in school. Putting a blob of Antoinette on the mat, I added Coco gradually with my finger until I felt I had the colour I wanted. I have to admit there is no scientific rule to how to work out the amounts, its all done by eye! In this case it was approximately 1/3 of Coco to 1 of Antoinette.
With an idea of the proportions I needed, I was ready to mix a batch and start painting. Obviously, if you do mix a colour you need to ensure you make enough, as it is hard to get exactly the same colour if you mix a new batch!
Finished off with lashings of clear wax to protect the paint, I was very happy with the result. In fact so happy I painted more than one piece with this lovely plaster pink colour!
It's soft almost calamine like tone would suit many styes from a romantic bedroom, to a retro kitchen. What do you think? Inspired, why not have a go yourself!
