Chalk Paint® and Waxes

When Annie Sloan developed her signature range of decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, in 1990, she revolutionised the way we see decorative painting. She called her paint Chalk Paint® because of its velvety, matt finish. And if you add Annie Sloan Soft Wax, you can achieve subtle sheen as well as protection and durability.
