To complement her hugely versatile decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, Annie Sloan created an entire line of finishing and embellishment products that help to achieve beautiful results quickly and easily for decorative painted projects. These include her beautifully smooth Chalk Paint® Wax; her easy-to-apply, water-based Chalk Paint® Lacquer; her shimmering Annie Sloan Gilding Wax; her Annie Sloan Gold Size; her Annie Sloan Image Medium; and her Annie Sloan Craqueleur.
Chalk Paint® Wax
Annie Sloan Waxes are the perfect partner for Chalk Paint®. These waxes are used for protection, durability, and to give a beautiful, soft finish to painted furniture, cabinets, fabrics, and walls. You can easily apply wax with a good brush or a lint-free cloth.
These fine, soft waxes are available in 4 colors, all with the same protective qualities:
- Clear – Perfect to seal and enhance any paint color
- Dark – This brown formula is great for creating an aged patina and for accentuating any details
- Black – Great for adding an industrial vibe or to accentuate detail in a modern way
- White – Wonderful for creating a sun-bleached, beachy look
You can even create a custom, colored wax by adding up to one third Chalk Paint® to your clear wax.
Chalk Paint® Wax comes in two sizes: 500ml and 120ml.
Chalk Paint® Lacquer
Chalk Paint® Lacquer is a strong, water-based varnish. It is particularly good on interior wood and concrete floors that have been painted with Chalk Paint®. It is quick-drying, non-toxic, non-yellowing, and has very little odor. When dry, it gives a beautiful, matte finish with a slight sheen.
Before using, be sure to stir gently to minimize the introduction of air bubbles, but well, to evenly redistributed all particles that have settled to the bottom of the can during shipping and storage. Apply in thin coats, with a thin foam roller for best results.
Chalk Paint® Lacquer comes in quart cans.
Annie Sloan Gilding Wax
Annie Sloan Gilding Wax is the perfect product to add a touch of shimmer to painted projects. Apply one, or more, of the beautiful, metallic colors to add extra elegance to ornate carvings and moldings or to enhance texture and detailing. You can also use it with your favorite stencil to create gilded shapes, lines, and designs. This shimmery, metallic wax can be applied with a lint-free cloth, a brush, or your fingers!
Annie Sloan Gilding Wax is available in five colors that were designed to complement the Annie Sloan Color Palette:
- Warm Gold
- Bright Gold
- Bright Silver
- Dark Silver
Annie Sloan Gilding Wax comes in 15ml tubes.
Annie Sloan Gold Size
Size is an old English word for glue. Annie Sloan Gold Size is water based for easy cleanup but has the advantage of staying sticky when dry. So, it’s perfect for applying either bronze powders or metal leaf quickly and easily. You can also use it with metal foils to create a beautiful sparkle effect.
Annie Sloan Gold Size is available in a 100ml jar.
Annie Sloan Image Medium
To easily add pictures or designs to projects, Annie Sloan Image Medium, formerly known as Decoupage Glue and Varnish, is the perfect product. It is water based and fast drying, allowing for quickly achieved beautiful results. Use it as an adhesive for decoupage or to transfer a laser-printed or photocopied image directly onto a surface. This easy-to-apply glue and varnish gives a beautifully smooth, matte finish.
Annie Sloan Image Medium is available in 125ml jars.
Annie Sloan Craqueleur
Annie Sloan’s Craqueleur replicates the crackle effect seen in the varnish on many Old Masters’ paintings. The two-part application gives you more control over the size of the cracks on your finish. After applying Step 1 and allowing it to dry, apply Step 2 in the thickness that will create your desired effect. The thinner you apply Step 2, the smaller the cracks. To make the crackle finish stand out, an application of either Annie Sloan Dark Wax or Annie Sloan Black Wax is then rubbed into the surface.
Craqeleur is meant to be used in small areas, on any surface, to create a great aged effect.
Sold individually, both Craqueleur Step 1 and Craqueleur Step 2 come in 125ml jars.
