This is a bright pure red like the red silk lining of a jacket. We love it used as a interior of a cupboard or drawer. It is named after the red of China but best of all, we love one piece in a room painted with this stunning colour maybe deepened with some dark wax in places.
Add white - to make 'Frangipani'. Add equal parts of Old White and Emperor's Silk to make a bright strong exotic flowery pink with a zing, so I've called it FRANGIPANI.
Add more white - to make 'Malacca'. Add 3 parts of Old White to 1 part of Emperor's Silk to make a pink I call MALACCA because it reminds me of pinks from Indonesia.
