Color Blog featuring Navajo White!
While we love color and many of you do too, we also love the elegance and purity of white. Neutral colors, including our 4 shades of white will always be popular, and its easy to fall in love with them! Navajo White is a lovely soft true white, and it’s a standard for beauty, as well as it is versatile and can be added to other paint colors to change the gradation or tint of a color. You can use our Clear and Dark Wax, Top Coat or Hard Coat, to finish Navajo White and you can depend on it being a true soft white today and always!
