Annie Sloan developed Chalk Paint® decorative paint, more than 20 years ago because she was unhappy with the uniformity of all other paints on the market. She was looking to create something that would have diverse uses and applications and colors that were true, rich and vibrant and did not rely on the use of black, which tends to dirty the color. Annie, a painter for over forty years, evolved towards decorative work and particularly studying and understanding color. Drawing on her knowledge of paint, pigments, love of color, and fine art training, she developed her now famous Chalk Paint®. It has been available in Europe for over 20 years and now is available in the United States.
Annie has also sold over 2 million books about painting and paint techniques!
This is not Latex paint. Chalk Paint® is heavily pigmented water-based paint with very little black. This paint does not create a film that sits on the surface, rather it bonds with the substrate making sanding and priming unnecessary. (No sanding, no priming, no kidding!) It is so easy to sand back for antique, French, and shabby chic looks. You will LOVE this product at first brush stroke!
