Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®- Florence is inspired by the colors of the copper green mineral and semi-precious stone, malachite, and from the same family of stones as azurite and turquoise. In the 17th and 18th century it was used as a color made with verdigris. As it is a very fugitive color which turns black with time, we are not aware of how it was used on woodwork in homes of the period. It is a classical color found in vintage Italian furniture.
Available in two sizes: Project Pot (4 oz) and a 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.
