Colour Card – Elkhorn


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 colours will really look on the wall.

ELKHORN - a lime wash colour made with burnt umber pigment, it refracts light in a complex way and is very light-responsive, the perfect modern grey beige.

ELKHORN has a grey undertone in certain light conditions. This natural lime wash paint can appear much greyer on the wall, than on the Colour Card. A lighter version is Kosciusko. A darker version is Clay. Darker again is Owl. Darker again is Sheoak.

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.
