Emperor’s Silk

This is a bright pure red like the red silk lining of a jacket. We love it used as a interior of a cupboard or drawer. It is named after the red of China but best of all, we love one piece in a room painted with this stunning colour maybe deepened with some dark wax in places.

ADD WHITE- to make ‘Frangipani’Add equal parts of Old White and Emperor’s Silk to make a bright strong exotic flowery pink with a zing, so it’s called it FRANGIPANI


ADD MORE WHITE- to make ‘Malacca’Add 3 parts of Old White to 1 part of Emperor’s Silk to make a pink I call MALACCA because it reminds me of pinks from Indonesia


Graphite over Emperor’s Silk allowing the red to glow through is a way to give paintwork an exotic eastern look

Chateau Grey
