Chalk Paint® Tips
Paint two coats of Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan. Let dry between coats. It takes about 20-30 minutes to dry. Use a bit of water on the brush tips during the second coat for easier application. If you want to distress you can do so either before or after you wax. Then using a wax brush or soft cloth apply Annie’s clear wax, wiping back the excess wax with a soft cloth. If using Annie’s dark wax, apply while clear wax is still moist, rubbing off excess so surface is moist but not tacky or greasy. Don’t use a rubbing motion to wipe off excess, instead just wipe it off firmly using one or two passes with the cloth. Let waxed piece dry overnight and then buff with a soft cloth for a nice luster. Common mistakes are using too much wax, so use just enough and make sure you wipe off excess but wait to buff at least 24 hours. Wash both your wax and paint brushes with hot water and Dawn dish soap. Waxed furniture will fully cure within 3 weeks, so until then take care using your newly painted and waxed piece. Care for your piece by wiping with mild soap and water.
