About Annie Sloan
Annie Sloan’s fine-art background and ‘contagious enthusiasm’ for decorative painting has motivated both home painters and experienced professionals for over 30 years.
Annie carefully selects her stockists and we are extremely fortunate to have been one of them since 2009.
According to The Telegraph, Annie Sloan is one of "Britain's most influential female designers." She has led the decorative painting revolution over the last three decades and is widely recognised as one of the world's most respected experts in paint and colour.
Annie trained as a find artist at university but turned to decorative work painting murals by commission in the 1970s. She became an expert in Decorative Paint Techniques, about which she wrote the phenomenally successful book – The Complete Book of Decorative Paint Techniques in 1987.
Unable to fine the exact paint she wanted to work with, she set about mixing and formulating her own and in 1990 transformed the world of furniture paint forever with the creation of her own brand of decorative paint, Chalk Paint®.
Chalk Paint® is designed to be fun and easy to use. It very rarely requires any preparation, such as sanding or priming, and can be used indoors or outside, on just about any surface. It can revitalise old furniture, walls, ceilings and floors with ease. It's easy, fun and makes amazing results accessible to everyone.
“There’s no need for tiresome priming and sanding – you can get straight to the fun bit!” – Annie Sloan
Chalk Paint®, offers the ultimate in flexibility with colours that can be mixed together, lightened or darkened. It can be thickened or thinned, used as a wash or even a dye. Seal it with clear Chalk Paint® Wax or Annie Sloan Lacquer for a durable finish.
Not just for furniture, Annie Sloan Wall Paint offers strength, durability and a scrubbable, matte finish, perfect for walls and ceilings with no need to finish with wax.
