Chalk Paint® Decorative Paints
Annie Sloan developed her now famous Chalk Paint® in 1990 to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would have many uses, from acting like limewash to looking like vintage painted furniture. She called it Chalk Paint® because of its beautiful velvety matte finish.
Features of Chalk Paint®
Chalk Paint® is very easy to work with. It rarely requires any surface preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outdoors. It can revitalize old furniture, walls, ceilings and floors with ease. It’s easy and fun, and makes amazing results accessible to everyone.
Adheres well. Chalk Paint® adheres to almost any surface, from wood to concrete to metal, generally without sanding or priming. You can achieve different looks by adding water to smooth it, leaving the lid off to thicken it, or making it into a wash with water.
Broad palette. We provide a striking color palette inspired by 18th and 20th century design, and you can mix the colors together to extend the range we offer. Since Chalk Paint® is highly pigmented and made with little or no black, it allows for combining colors, further mixing, and layering without dulling the colors.
