Now a global phenomenon, Annie Sloan first developed the Chalk Paint® range in 1990 to answer the need she had for a versatile paint that would work beautifully on furniture without priming or sanding; that would be easy to use and quick to dry; and that could be used for a number of different paint techniques. She called it Chalk Paint® because of its velvety, ultra matte finish. Please note that colours will vary depending on screen settings.
Chalk Paint® is the versatile furniture paint developed by Annie Sloan in 1990. With no need for sanding or priming, you can simply pop open the tin, roll up your sleeves, dip in your brush and apply paint to furniture. Works on wood, metal, laminate, concrete, indoors, outdoors and beyond.
Available in litres or 120ml sample pots.

Alongside her unique and hugely versatile decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, Annie Sloan has developed a whole range of products that will help you achieve wonderful results quickly and easil
Use Chalk Paint® Wax to seal and protect furniture and walls painted with Chalk Paint® decorative paint. Chalk Paint® Wax emphasises depth of colour and gives a beautiful mellow finish, or can be buffed to a high sheen. It is water-repellent too, so can be used on dining room tables and kitchen cabinets.
Black Chalk Paint® Wax will give a cool, dark finish to your paintwork, bringing out texture in brushwork and mouldings, as well as darkening and enriching colours. Use it with clear Chalk Paint® Wax to seal and protect furniture and walls painted with Chalk Paint® decorative paint.
Apply dark Chalk Paint® Wax to age and give texture to your paintwork. Use it with clear Chalk Paint® Wax to seal and protect furniture and walls painted with Chalk Paint® decorative paint.
Use White Chalk Paint® Wax to soften and lighten Chalk Paint® colours. It can also be applied directly onto unvarnished wood to create a limed look. Chalk Paint Wax® will seal and protect furniture and walls painted with Chalk Paint® decorative paint.
To achieve Annie's signature look, first apply a thin coat of clear Chalk Paint® Wax, removing any excess with a clean cloth. Next, apply the Dark Wax, pushing it into the paintwork to bring out brush marks and recesses. Wipe off any excess with Clear Wax, making sure every part of your piece has been waxed at least once.
Annie Sloan’s Flat Brushes feature advanced synthetic fibres, in a vibrant blue, which help to produce a smooth, contemporary finish. The brushes are designed to take a large amount of paint and to apply the paint evenly, minimising brush marks.
Annie Sloan’s Sanding Pads come in packs of three, with one pad of each grade – fine, medium and coarse.
The fine pad can be used for light distressing or flat finishes, and for a delicate worn effect you can use the medium grade pad. If you prefer a rustic heavily distressed look the coarse pad will help make stunning results easy to achieve.
They have been carefully chosen by Annie as they are washable, flexible, durable, reusable and a pleasure to use.
Add a metallic touch to your painted furniture with Annie Sloan Gilding Wax. Apply to ornate carvings and mouldings to enhance texture and detailing, or use with your favourite Annie Sloan Stencil to create gilded shapes, lines and designs. Can be applied with a lint-free cloth or a brush. Gilding Wax is a finishing product, so should be applied after Clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
Chalk Paint® Lacquer is a hard-wearing, water-based polyacrylic varnish with built-in UV protection. Use it over Chalk Paint® for a robust finish that will withstand general wear and tear – perfect for dining room tables, outdoor furniture, floors and skirting boards. It goes on perfectly clear and dries quickly without yellowing over time. See our Fact Sheet for more information.
Available in two finishes: Matt and Gloss. Comes in tins of 750ml. Matt Lacquer provides a matt finish and will slightly darken the colour of the Chalk Paint®, as with Chalk Paint® Wax. Gloss gives a light sheen but is not ultra glossy.
