Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Well-known in the UK and North America, Annie Sloan’s decorative chalk paint is now available in South Africa. The paint was developed as Annie’s solution to the tiresome process of painting furniture and other surfaces. Priming and sanding is a thing of the past with this easy paint, as all you need to do is apply it to any surface for a velvety, matte finish. This water-based chalk paint is suitable for use on just about any surface… wood, concrete, metal, plastic, glass and floors. The extremely low-levels of volatile organic compounds (VOICS) means it’s safe and healthy to use around your family too.

Annie looked to her fine art background when selecting and naming the palette, as is evident with names like Louis Blue and Château Grey. The palette, comprised of 32 colours, is a careful representation of those found in 18th and 20th century décor and ranges from soft, pale hues to vivid tones.
