Colour Card – Basalt


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.

BASALT The colour Basalt, as the name suggests, is inspired by the look of stone. This colour is moody and highly refractive of light, the dynamic colour tones range from a slight hint of red to a much cooler grey. This natural lime wash paint is a warmer version of a concrete or beton colour look.

BASALT has a grey undertone in certain light conditions. It can appear much greyer on the wall, than on the Colour Card. A darker version is Flax. Darker again is Pepper.

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.
