We are official stockists of Annie Sloan paint.
Annie Sloan first developed her now famous decorative paint, Chalk Paint (TM), over 20 years ago. When she started developing it, she wanted to create a decorative paint that was immediate and allowed her to be direct and spontaneous. She had three young boys under 7 at the time, so she had little time to decorate. She wanted a fast turn around – paint in the morning, then wax and put it back in position by the afternoon.
What’s more, she wanted to develop a paint that could go on more or less anything – old and new wood, metal, plastic, cement, bricks, etc. – all with no priming, no sanding, no preparation needed.
She also wanted the colours to be mixable without becoming dead or muddy – indeed, the way she makes colours is not the same as any other paint company.
She called her paint Chalk PaintTM because of its beautiful velvety, matt finish.
