This is a bright pure red like the red silk lining of a jacket. We love it used as a interior of a cupboard or drawer. It is named after the red of China but best of all, we love one piece in a room painted with this stunning colour maybe deepened with some dark wax in places.
ADD WHITE- to make 'Frangipani': Add equal parts of Old White and Emperor's Silk to make a bright strong exotic flowery pink with a zing, so I've called it Frangipani.
ADD MORE WHITE- to make 'Malacca': Add 3 parts of Old White to 1 part of Emperor's Silk to make a pink I call Malacca because it reminds me of pinks from Indonesia.
To change the saturation of Emperor's Slk add Old White in 1 part, 2 parts, 3 parts and 4 parts to lighten and bring out the true hue of the colour.
