Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®
By leading the decorative painting revolution over the last three decades, Annie Sloan is widely recognized as one of the world's most respected experts in paint and color.
Annie trained as a fine artist and turned to decorative work after graduating from university in the mid 1970s. Unable to find the paints that she wished to work with, Annie used her knowledge of color, paint, pigments and art history to develop Chalk Paint® in 1990. In 2000, Annie set up a shop in Oxford, England to showcase Chalk Paint®, run courses, and offer interior design services.
Annie Sloan first developed the Chalk Paint® range to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would work beautifully on furniture without priming or sanding; that would be easy to use and quick to dry; and that could be used for a number of different paint techniques. She called it Chalk Paint® because of its velvety, ultra matte finish.
Chalk Paint® is the brand name for Annie’s unique water-based decorative paint. It is a non-toxic paint that is lead-free, EG-free, odor-free and has very low volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Developed by Annie Sloan specifically for furniture, it can be applied to most surfaces and very rarely requires any priming or sanding before painting. You can use it on walls, floors, wood, concrete, metal, matte plastic, earthenware, brick, stone and more – inside or outside. You can even use it to paint upholstery and dye fabric.
Chalk Paint® is THE ONLY true chalk paint available, other brands will say "chalk-like paint" and be a clay based product, which has different texture, coverage and variations in pigment.
