Annie Sloan continues to be the inspiration and the driving force behind the painted furniture revolution through her lively and creative approach to painting. Her strong desire to communicate and empower people creatively is manifested through her books, workshops and the creation of Chalk Paint®, Soft Wax, and other product lines including her own paintbrushes. With her training in Fine Art as well as decades writing about and working on decorative painting techniques she is widely considered to be the world's leading expert and authority on the subject.
Annie created her own special paint, called Chalk Paint® decorative paint more than 20 years ago. It is specifically designed for furniture, but can also be used on virtually any surface. It requires no sanding or priming, is quick to dry, very low VOC, and highly adaptable and flexible for specialist finishes and techniques. Its soft, matte finish is the reason Annie called it 'Chalk Paint®.'
