Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® This is a putty color using a greenish raw umber, very neutral, making it a really useful color. It works well on its own or with a white, and as a top coat with cream or Scandinavian Pink underneath. It is generally seen as a more rustic color, more appropriate for a country look rather than a chateau.
Another fabulous application of Country Grey is to mix with other, stronger colors such as Olive or Duck Egg Blue to make them paler and "knocked back".
Available in two sizes: Project Pot (4 oz) or Quart.
- A little bit of paint goes a long way, especially when used with the proper brush. Do not fill your brush with paint, and use a light touch when applying the paint to your surface.
- You may add water to your paint depending on your preference of the finished product. We recommend using a spray bottle filled with water and spritzing the surface gently as you move along. You can also remove paint from your tin and mix a small amount of water to your desired consistency. We never recommend adding water to your paint tin directly.
- Aim for multiple thin coats to achieve your desired look instead of one thicker coat of paint. Do not apply a second coat until your first coat is completely dry.
- Some prefer to distress before waxing, and some prefer to distress after waxing. Remember, if you distress after you wax, you will need to reapply a second layer of wax. Always apply a clear coat of wax before any colored wax.
