Blue Ochre Chalk Wash

Artisan Special Effects


Natural vivianite. An ocean blue rippling with texture. Artisan Blue Ochre Chalk Wash metamorphosises with the base colour and application technique that you choose to apply it with. Its dark iron blue colouring has a grey tone that brings warmth to the inky deep of its shade, becoming a creative playground of exploration with contrast and texture. Use large sweeping brush strokes to create oceanic movement or use a stippling effect that undulates with the light for a dense organic feel.



Apply Artisan Chalk Wash over Craig & Rose 1829 Chalky Emulsion. Pair with a similar shade for a more understated look, a complimentary neutral to make the texture more vivid or choose a contrasting colour for a bold statement.


There are several different ways of applying Chalk Wash, either sponged, rag-rolled or brushed. Test your preferred method on card first. Make sure that your base paint colour has dried for at least 4 hours before applying this effect.

Please note that it is best not to apply more than one coat as this may lessen the translucent effect of this Chalk Wash effect.

For further information on prep, application, dry time and coverage please see our Craig & Rose Artisan Technical Data Sheets.
