For a small amount of paint you can use a big spoon or for lager amounts use a cup. Two dollops of Old White to one dollop of Provence is a ratio of 2 to 1 making a lovely soft pale slightly aged turquoise like old faded French shutters. Use Pure and the colour is cleaner and fresher, more vintage 1950s!
Small side table. Color: Florence. "This is inspired by the colors of the copper green mineral and semi-precious stone, malachite, and from the same family of stones as azurite and turquoise. from Robyn Story Designs
Annie Sloan chalk paint...really want to try this stuff. Apparently you don't need to sand furniture before you use it, and it is very low VOC so I could do furniture projects inside in the winter! They show swatches of what it looks like with white added, so it would be fun to do an ombre effect on something with this paint.
Provence Blue green shutters in the South of France are the inspiration for this colour. Set against walls of any of the whites. Provence needs light and bright fabrics with a Mediterranean and seaside feel. Other paint colours that work with Provence also need to have the same freshness and strength. Of course a cupboard painted Provence looks great against a wall of Old White.
