Deep Lead

French Gray

This can be made by tinting white with a little ivory or drop black and adding a little carmine 01 crimson lake and ultramarine. This produces a very slight violet tinge. White tinted with a little ultramarine and Venetian red also gives a good French gray. Celestial blue or cobalt may be used instead of the ultramarine if desired. Another good mixture is made by tinting white lead with one part of black and two parts of orange chrome.

Pearl

This is the same as French gray, but is much lighter.

Pearl Gray

Forty parts white lead, five parts of vermilion and one part of deep chrome green. Some decorators tint white lead with lamp black and call that pearl gray. Strictly speaking, however, it should not be called pearl gray, there being no color present. Six parts of white lead, two parts of Venetian red, and one part of lamp black gives a somewhat dark pearl gray, but a lighter tint may easily be obtained by adding more lead. Ivory black answers equally as well as lamp black.
