This is THE paint to use for the painted French & Swedish and Modern Vintage look on furniture where the paintwork shows a patina of history. The paint is soft and easy to patinate taking our soft wax to give it a beautifully mellow and protective finish. The colors have been inspired by European 18th-century furniture and 20th-century paintwork and have been made bright and rich, bearing in mind that they will be darkened with wax or made paler with the addition of one of the whites from the range. Like all Annie Sloan paints the colors have been mixed in such a way that allows mixing and being lighted a layering without the colors dulling.
On a practical note, the woodwork NEEDS NO PRIMING, NO PREPARATION as it will stick to almost everything – old waxed pine, melamine, and varnished wood included. Knots on new wood need to be sealed with Knotting solution. Great coverage but does depend on what you are painting, but a rough guide is 13 square meters.
The paint allows walls to breathe and is a simple Eco-friendly water-based paint. Wash brushes out in water.

Annie Sloan developed her now famous decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, in 1990. Back then, there was no paint available with the properties Annie was looking for, so she decided to develop her own. She came to choose the name “Chalk Paint” because it was suggestive of its very matte—almost chalky—finish. Chalk Paint® is different. It is not simply paint with chalk added to it. It is not chalkboard paint. It is not made by adding plaster of Paris or grout or even baking soda to an existing paint. Chalk Paint® is the unique decorative paint Annie Sloan developed for furniture, floors and walls, drawing on a lifetime of research and experience in working with paint and colour. Chalk Paint® adheres to most surfaces and creates gorgeous results quickly and easily. Use it for a textured finish, a distressed finish, a smooth contemporary finish or even as 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 (VOCs). There is only one Chalk Paint® but it offers endless possibilities.
