Chalk Paint Colour Card

Complementary Colours

A complementary is the opposite colour - 
it can mean they fight each other or they get along really well - just like people really!

Purple and yellow are opposite each other on the colour wheel 

With a complemetary one colour is a primary colour and the other is a secondary. 
In this case the primary is Cream - it's a yellow but with lots of white in it. 
The secondary is the Old Violet which is made roughly from two primaries - blue and red. 


Mixing yellow and purple together makes Paloma - a grey made from two complementaries. 

I've made some great boards I have painted with colour swatches I want to share with you! 
Louis Blue & a pop of it's complementary Orange on the cups
