Annie Sloan's Graphite is a soft black - which I like to compare to charcoal. The blue undertones that once were in the packaging of the product in quarts is no longer.
It is a rich color. It does have depth and interest- and clearly plays wonderfully with other pieces painted in a true black. When decorating a room- try to avoid the whole "Matchy-matchy" approach. Layer texture, patterns and hues of color....including various shades of "black."
Using Dark Wax over Graphite makes it significantly rich in color and you may want to consider this as an option. It will give it a warmer feel.
Use Annie's BLACK WAX directly over Graphite to makes it even blacker!
