Annie Sloan developed this unique paint that can be beautifully done in several techniques but the item you're painting does not have to be primed or sanded and is easy to use and quick to dry, and it's super durable. She called it chalk paint, which is her patented name, because of it's velvety ultra matte finish.
Before taking this workshop, I have to say I had my doubts about how different this paint could really be compared to your typical latex...wow, was I shocked! We were taught 5 different techniques using pieces of plain wood trim. We did everything from a normal one color all over finish, to layering multiple colors, different brush strokes, sanding to get the distressed look and learning to use the wax that gives it the perfect finish. There are 33 colors to choose from and all the colors can be specially combined to practically any shade you can imagine. So much fun to finally learn about this!
If you have an old piece that you've thought about painting or want to go thrift shopping to acquire that perfect piece, I would highly recommend finding Annie Sloan chalk paint in your area. This stuff is amazing!
