Primer Red is a colour found in practically every culture, appearing in everything from Venetian palaces to Vietnamese temples, where red earths were plentiful and relatively easy to come by. Use it for rustic pieces or as a base for sophisticated colours like Château Grey or Versailles. It also works beautifully under gilding.
1 Litre (R275) of Chalk Paint is enough to cover approximately 13 square metres depending on the technique used. After painting, seal with either Chalk Paint™ Wax for a soft Matt finish (for interior use only), or Chalk Paint Lacquer for surfaces that may require a more resilient, robust finish such as table tops and floors. Use as is for textured techniques or add a little water as required for a smoother finish.
