When Annie Sloan developed her unique decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, over 25 years ago, she revolutionized the world of decorative painting. Frustrated with the lack of paint options available at the time, she created her signature furniture paint with its remarkable versatility and ease of use for everyone from the novice to the professional to enjoy. She called it Chalk Paint® because of its beautiful velvety, matt finish. These paints are natural, water-based, non-toxic, odorless, baby-safe and eco-friendly.
“One of the great aspects about my paint is the number of different ways it can be used – it is not a one dimensional paint but can be used thickly, thinly, crackled, stippled, overlaid and rubbed through, smoothly, and like gesso.” – Annie Sloan
Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan is very easy to work with. It very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outside on just about any surface from wood to metal, and matt plastic to terracotta. It can revitalize old furniture, walls, ceilings, and floors with ease. It’s easy, fun, and makes amazing results accessible to everyone.
With a colour palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century decor and design, you can easily mix the colours together to extend the range. The possibilities of creating different textures, finishes and shades are endless.
