Think of a large ripe orange and this is the colour of Barcelona Orange. Apply dark wax and the colour becomes a luscious burnt orange.
Its warmth and vivacity is a great accompaniment to neutral tones such as our greeny sludge colour, Chateau Grey or to the cool silveriness of Paris Grey as well as Aubusson Blue, its deep complementary partner. It is perfect for many interiors but particulalry with the 1960s vintage look.
Add Old White – to make ‘Papagena’. Add equal parts of Old White and Barcelona Orange to tone down the colour to make it a little pretty and flowery like one of my favourite characters PAPAGENA.
