Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan
Chalk Paint® decorative paint was created by Annie Sloan in Europe over 20 years ago. They are exclusive artisan paints that are water-based & eco-friendly with very low VOC’s. It is meant for furniture, but can also be used on walls & many other surfaces. Chalk Paint® is so easy to use and the results are fabulous. It requires no prep work (that’s right, no sanding or priming required, and yes, even on those glossy surfaces!) and will adhere to just about any surface.
Chalk Paint® is a dream to work with since its so versatile! You can add water to make it into a wash, or leave the lid off to thicken it up and create texture. Use a smooth brush for a smooth texture, or create texture with a bristle brush & uneven brush strokes. Layer it for a shabby look, or sand it down to create a super smooth surface. Endless possibilities! It’s a complete protective 2-step system when you finish with Annie Sloan soft wax, available in clear & dark. Clear wax gives a protective coat and dark wax adds a bit of an antiqued or aged look. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! This stuff is addictive!
Available in 32oz. & 4 oz. sample jars. In general, a quart will cover 2-3 medium to large pieces of furniture, the 4oz. container will cover a small side table. Of course it all depends on coverage.
