Welcome to our newest Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ color that was inspired by the colors of the copper green mineral and semi-precious stone, malachite, and from the same family of stones as azurite and turquoise. In the 17th and 18th century it was used as a color made with verdigris but as it is a very fugitive color turning black with time so we are not aware of how it was used on woodwork in many houses.
It is a classical color found in classical Italian furniture.

Florence will be in-stock next week, and we can't wait to start painting! Here are a few projects from around the net to inspire...
Of course, we could have tried out this gorgeous new colour on a candlestick or a piece of moulding, but true to form, our 'Chief Reimaginer' Leanne had to go big or go home.
Leanne: "Here is my primitive 'computer sketch' of my ASCP Florence project."
Us: "Really... don't you want to try it on something small first?"
Cue Leanne's stare of disbelief and chirping crickets
Us: "Right. Well, we'll take pics"
So, we'll share the end results with you once she finishes. For now, here is the 'sketch':
and here is the Florence paint swatch, extended with ASCP Old White:
