Lichen

No.19

A mid aged green

This calm and muted green is named after the ever changing, subtle colour of creeping algae which ages stone so beautifully. It has a quiet and subtle feel to it, due to its underlying blue tone, and is perfect for use in the garden where it feels totally at one with nature. It works wonderfully as a darker accent to Vert de Terre too. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Lichen is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 147.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour This colour is stunning on our hall stairs and landing. It goes far but be careful as it can scrape off easily and it’s not easy to wipe clean. Would highly recommend though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from external door Used for a French door onto a garden. I love the way the colour brings the natural greens of the garden into the kitchen space and looks lovely against brass hardware. It's a soft but rich green, darker than Vert de Terre, but tonally similar. I think on a larger space it tends to look lighter than the tester pot suggests. The door was painted professionally and mid-tones undercoat used. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colour and finish I wanted lichen to use on accent pieces with setting plaster. I painted door frames and radiator in lichen and I'm so happy with the result.
