Colour Card – Catkin 22/53

$1.00

Bauwerk Colour Cards are hand painted and come in a large format card 10.5 cm x 15 cm to make it really easy to get a good feel for how your lime wash paint colours will really look on the wall.

CATKIN - This lime wash paint colour beautiful soft grey colour made with earthen pigment. The word catkin is a loanword from the old Dutch "katteken", meaning "kitten", on account of the resemblance to a kitten's tail.

CATKIN has a grey undertone in certain light conditions. It can appear much greyer on the wall, than on the Colour Card. A lighter version is Mallorca. A darker version is White Stag. Darker again is Tweed.

It is a good idea to look at your colours in the location you expect to paint, colours appear different in different light conditions interior or exterior.

Hold your colour card vertical up against the wall as this can also effect how you see the colour. We recommend that you always trial your colour with a Sample Pot to be sure the colour appears as you imagine it will on your wall.
