Chalk Paint® is a famous decorative paint that was developed by Annie Sloan in 1990. Chalk Paint® adheres to most surfaces and creates results you wouldn't believe, while also being quick and easy. Use it for a textured, distressed, or smooth contemporary finish or even a wash.
Chalk Paint® is a non-toxic, water based paint that is lead-free, EG-free, odor-free and has very low volatile organic compounds. The palette of colours were chosen very carefully by Annie. They range from soft, pale hues to bright, vivid tones reminiscent of historic european decor as well as strong 20th century colours. They are rich and strong so they may be lightened, mixed together, dulled with Dark Wax or used as washes without losing their intensity and depth. The Annie Sloan soft wax is available in Clear and Dark.
This is more than just a paint. It has been the inspiration, expression, and creativity of many through the help of Annie Sloan. It has become recognized for its superior quality and integrity, and the authenticity of the results it offers. To learn more, please join us and register for a workshop!
