Chalk Paint ® by Annie Sloan is water based and highly concentrated to produce extensive covering power. The paints dry with a beautiful velvety matte finish.
For most purposes one coat of paint is enough. However some furniture generally from the 1930’s and ’40’s, has a coating which may cause a stain to come through the paint. Don’t worry, just apply clear shellac to the stain, and repaint.
* No priming or sanding necessary.
* No removing of old wax, paint, or varnish.
* This paint sticks to most surfaces, e.g. wood, paint, stone, brick concrete and metal.
Avg coverage per quart pot is 150 sq ft
