Annie Sloan 500ml Arles Chalk Paint
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.
The pictures included show a matt lacquered Napoleonic Blue sideboard and a Paris Grey bureau mainly finished in matte lacquer with the scallop detail finished in gloss lacquer (here, you can see the difference between the gloss and matt finishes).
Technical information One 750ml tin will cover 19 square metres (204ft ²).
Artist and innovator Annie Sloan invented her revolutionary Chalk Paint® in 1990, and has continued to refine her formula ever since. Designed for use on furniture and walls, it is unique in that, in most cases, it can be used without the need for any preparation, such as sanding or priming. Described as ‘the fool-proof furniture paint’ is can be applied to many types of surface, including metal, melamine, wood and glass. With a vibrant colour palette inspired by 18th and 20th Century decor and design to choose from, there’s a pigment for every project.
