Louis Blue





A pretty pastel Madame de Pompadour blue works particularly well
when waxed with a dark brown.




Pompadour
ADD OLD WHITE- to make ‘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 MORE OLD WHITE- to make ‘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.
