CHALK PAINT® DECORATIVE PAINT BY ANNIE SLOAN
Chalk Paint® is the versatile furniture paint developed by Annie Sloan in 1990. With no need for sanding or priming, you can simply pop open the tin, roll up your sleeves, dip in your brush and apply paint to furniture. Works on wood, metal, laminate, concrete, indoors, outdoors and beyond.
Chalk Paint is the brand name for Annie’s unique water-based decorative paint. It is a non-toxic and virtually odour-free paint that has minimal volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at 0.13% VOC (EU limit value for this product (cat. a): 30g/l (2010)). Developed by Annie Sloan specifically for furniture, it can be applied to most surfaces and very rarely requires any priming or sanding before painting. You can use it on walls, floors, wood, concrete, metal, matt plastic, earthenware, brick, stone and more – inside or outside. You can even use it to paint upholstery and dye fabric.
Chalk Paint® produces extensive coverage approx 13.9 sq metres per litre (equivalent to a small dresser) and one coat is usually enough. It can be thinned with water and used as a wash. It can also be used as an impasto (thickly) — just leave the lid off overnight to thicken. Add Chalk Paint Wax for a subtle sheen, protection and durability. For an aged look, add Dark or Black Chalk Paint Wax. To lighten colours or for a limed look, try White Chalk Paint Wax.
