Flax Yellow Chalk Wash

Artisan Special Effects


Golden texture. A rich cadmium sunseeker. Artisan Flax Yellow Chalk Wash creates a joyously deep shade of sunflower yellow. Apply the wash over rich ochre or umber shades to create a warm burnished finish, or with a lighter shade base, layer up to achieve a deep mustard seed yellow. Wherever you want the sun, apply Flax Yellow Chalk Wash. Complete your scheme with dusty blue accessories and grass green upholstery. This is a fine art shade for bringing out your inner Expressionist.

Best applied over a base coat of Craig & Rose 1829 Chalky Emulsion paint. Choose a contrasting base colour for a bold effect or pair with a similar shade for a more understated look.


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 effect 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.
