    • How to use Chalk Paint®

      As a rough guide, one litre of Chalk Paint® covers aproximately 13 square metres, or the equivalent of a small dresser. For most purposes, one coat of paint is enough. Chalk Paint® adheres to almost any surface, and there is rarely any need to sand or prime before painting.To get started, tip pot upside down and shake before use. Then open and stir well. If paint is too thick just add a little water and stir.

      Applying Annie Sloan Soft Wax

      Annie Sloan Soft Wax is the perfect complement for Chalk Paint®. In fact, we’d say it’s an essential partner! It adds durability, deepens the colours and gives a very slight sheen. It’s really easy to get sensational results – just use a cotton rag, or your Annie Sloan Wax Brush, to get it into corners and crevices. As a very rough guide, you will need one 500ml tin of wax for every 3-4 litres of paint – of course, this will vary depending on how many coats of paint or wax you use to cover a piece. And it's always best to have a little wax left over for touching up. With the lid tightly on, it will last indefinitely.

      ● When you apply the wax, ‘push’ it into your Chalk Paint® for the best results. Think hand cream – and apply it in the same way! Remove excess wax with a clean cloth.

      ● Less is more, so there’s no need to apply wax too thickly. The wax will feel touch-dry immediately after you’ve applied it.

      ● Work small areas at a time, so the wax doesn’t dry before you get to work it in.

      For an aged effect, push Dark Soft Wax into crevices, and wipe it back with the Clear Soft Wax to achieve your perfect result. The Wax will be dry to the touch very quickly but take longer to harden or ‘cure’. The ‘curing’ process can take 5 - 21 days depending on ambient temperature. If you want to achieve a really good shine, allow around 24 hours before buffing. Annie Sloan Soft Wax is food-safe when completely cured.
