Annie Sloan developed her now famous Chalk Paint to answer the need she had for a paint which would have many uses from acting like limewash to looking like old painted furniture and that had a good range of colour that could be extended by the user.

This paint is very easy to work with and allows people to be creative as one doesn’t get involved with the technicalities of preparation and it also allows you to change your mind without hassle.

This is absolutely THE BEST 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 absorbing the Annie Sloan Soft Wax to give it a beautiful mellow and protective finish.

The colours 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 colours have been mixed in such a way that allows mixing and being lightened and layering without the colours dulling.
