About Chalk Paint
What is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint?
It is by far the best paint on the market for painting furniture. It's water-based and highly concentrated to produce extensive covering power. For most purposes, one coat is sufficient. You can cover approximately 150 square feet per quart! Use one color, or layer colors. It can be diluted to create a wash or used as an impasto(thick finish) by leaving the lid off of the can to thicken. Distress your projects with fine sandpaper and use Annie Sloan's waxes to create a patina.
Your projects can be left with a velvety matte finish or can be waxed to give a soft shine. Use on walls for a plaster effect. Floors can be painted solid or painted with a translucent wash. Great for outdoor use, it will distress and fade naturally without peeling. Any color can be used to create a chalkboard. This paint also allows walls to breathe and is perfect for damp, high humidity areas.
It's flexible, so you can be creative and paint right over an existing color if you change your mind. This paint can be washed off of your brush with water, even a week later! It's extremely low in VOC's, so it's good for the environment.
It comes in 29 unique decorative and historical colors that can be mixed to make a custom look.
