Louis Blue

 

A pretty pastel Madame de Pompadour blue works particularly well when waxed with a dark brown. Louis Blue works well with Château Grey and Paris Grey.

Pompadour

 

Add 3 parts of Old White to 1 part of Louis Blue to make a graceful grey blue that makes me think of the beautiful and refined favourite of Louis XV so I called it POMPADOUR.

 

 

Sophia

Add 8 parts of Old White to 1 part of Louis Blue makes a very soft grey Swedish blue that I have called SOPHIA after King Gustav’s daughter.
