Colour Card – Shale


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.

SHALE A true pale grey, very soft and easy to live with. Even though it is on the cool side of the colour spectrum, it still appears relaxing and calming.

SHALE is a cool grey from our range of lime wash paints. It will appear a much cooler grey on the wall, than the Colour Card. For a lighter version consider the colour Silver. A darker version is Ash. Darker again is Riverstone. Darker again is Seal Rocks.

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.
