All the Other Stuff You Might Need

For painting furniture you will need waxes and you may need crackle varnish, gilding materials and decoupage varnish. We suggest starting with Complete Kit or for a gift.

Large Wax Brush

Large Wax Brush



Price: £29.95

These new pure bristle Wax Brushes feature short, ergonomic handles to make working wax into paintwork easier than ever. They are shaped to a point so you can get wax into detailed areas and move around in tight spaces. The point is shaped rather than cut making use of the natural split end of the bristle, resulting in these brushes being the best performing and longest lasting wax brushes on the market.
The longer handle has been designed to get for large area, with a pointed tip for corners and carving.

I find I apply the wax with the brush to make it easy and the get into the difficult to reach areas and then wipe it 'off' with a cloth.

The shorter handle has been designed to get into awkward spaces with limited acess and the pointed end is good for intricate carving.

Annie Sloan Soft Wax is the consistency of soft margerine in a tub so it is easy to apply, is completely colourless and has very little odour. It is water-repellent so can be used on dining room tables and kitchens. Wipe clean regularly with a damp cloth although for tough marks use a proprietry spray cleaner and rewax.
Annie recommends applying Chalk Paint® decorative paint, waxing it and then sanding it for the best results. You can also colour the Clear Soft Wax with a little Chalk Paint®.

Gold Size 100ml pot

Gold Size 100ml pot



Price: £5.45

Size is an old English word for glue. Gold size is the glue used for applying bronze powders and metal leaf to surfaces.
Annie Sloan Gold Size is water based and has the advantage of staying sticky when dry.

Paint it on thinly, allow 5 minutes to dry. When dry it becomes clear and then is the time to apply either bronze powders or metal leaf. Any unused areas may be waxed, varnished or washed, making them no longer sticky.

Decoupage Varnish

Decoupage Varnish



Price: £6.45


Annie Sloan Decoupage is a water based fast drying glue and varnish. It builds up layers very quickly making it suitable for découpage. It is extra thick and easy to apply but should be applied thinly. With a paper, such as gift wrap, about 6 layers are needed to give a smooth finish. The finish is matt.

Lacquer

Lacquer



Price: £19.95

Annie Sloan Lacquer is designed to go over Chalk Paint® for wood or concrete surfaces.
This is clear matt lacquer but there is a very slight sheen because we want to offer some strength. A matt finish is less strong than a shiny finish generally.
1 litre £19.95
As a guideline we suggest this will cover approx 12 square metres but this will vary according to the absorbency of the floor. Not suitable for areas of high water such as bathrooms. Results may vary depending on previous treatment of surface.

Craqueleur

Craqueleur



Price: £12.95

Annie Sloan Craqueleur is a two-part set for achieving a crackled finish like the cracked varnish on an old master painting. The size of the cracks can be varied according to how fine a layer of the Step 2 is applied in particuar. The thinner it is, the smaller the cracks.

Set consists of 150ml base coat and 150ml top coat.
