ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT

CHALK DÉCOR PAINTING

INSTRUCTIONS

Ensure you have an apron/old t-shirt on. Place newspaper on your work surface.

Items can be photo frames (as in the kit) a piece of pre – loved furniture or even fabric.

Paint your photo frame using the CHALK DÉCOR PAINT leave to dry, give the item a second coat with the same colour chalk paint.

Using a soft cloth rub a small amount of Décor Wax on the photo frame to seal it, giving the item a lovely finish.

Buff the photo frame using the same cloth.

Alternative Décor Painting Methods:

  1. A. DISTRESSED FINISH

Paint a lighter colour as a base on the photo frame and an alternate colour as the second coat.

Once the photo frame is completely dry, using sandpaper lightly sand over the top coat, the second coat will appear giving it a distressed look.

Using a soft cloth rub a small amount of Décor Wax on the photo frame to seal it, giving the item a lovely finish.

Buff the photo frame using the same cloth.

DRY BRUSHING FINISH

Paint the first coat and leave to dry.

Once the photo frame is completely dry, dip the edges of the paint brush into a second colour (dry brushing only uses the smallest amount of paint and no water). Ensure you don’t have too much paint on the brush, if you do wipe it on kitchen paper or newspaper to get rid of excess paint.

Brush the second coat on the photo frame with a quick gently brushing motion until you get the desired effect.

Leave to dry.

Using a soft cloth rub a small amount of Décor Wax on the photo frame to seal it, giving the item a lovely finish. Buff the photo frame using the same cloth.

TIPS:

Do not use wax for items painted for outdoor use rather use a good quality light varnish. Do not use large amounts of wax, use small amounts of wax spreading it evenly into the item.

Leave the wax to set for 24 hours before use.
