Blend Colors of Grey Gray – Reclaim and Cottage Paint

I have been working on uploading photos to our store items online,  and wanted to share them here as well.   Seeing colors stacked next to each other is helpful when deciding color.

These pictures portray various shades of GREY that we offer,  4 boards using Reclaim Paint and 2 boards  Cottage Paint

It’s obvious,Licorice  a stocked Reclaim color, is BLACK not GREY.  I included it as a reference for the other boards.  Pewter is a stocked Reclaim color as well

Shadow and Lead are two of our Cottage Paint colors that we custom tint –

and these last couple boards we call ‘Reclaim Blends‘  – colors we’ve concocted by blending together several or more Reclaim colors, using noted ratios –

If you like clean and crisp color, your paint project will be easiest,  just pick the paint color and you are ready to roll….  for those that prefer an antiqued effect, or overglaze, you have many options –

We offer a great selection of glaze colors,  and recently added two NEW glaze colors – a rich WALNUT,  and my favorite, a soft UMBER, the perfect neutral.   I’ll share those pictures next time.   Happy Painting!

  1. Hello Fabulously Finished, Can you send an email comparing1-Shadow with steel glaze2-reclaim blend 1 pewter 2 off whiteand3-Pebble with a neutral glaze ( couldn’t tell from the picture – but didn’t want black or white glaze) I am looking to paint my stock Hoods cabinets and LOVE your emails.  I have dark stained cabinets, almost black, factory finish and want to make sure I understand what to do and how to use your paints.Do I have to sand the wood, it is thin and i have sprayed Pledge on them to clean them as well as Method wood cleaner which I use for dusting and wiping down the cabinets as well.I will go to your website but just wondered if I could get a picture comparison before I order paint from you. Thanks so much! Terry 

  2. Hello. Can you tell me which black glaze brand was used with the Pewter color? Thank you
