Beloved by DIY enthusiasts across the globe, paint queen Annie Sloan returns this month with a brand spanking new product range and this time the focus is squarely on metallics. Unlike her crazily popular Chalk Paints (that, rather amazingly, allow you to repaint old wooden furniture without having to pick up a sander!), this new range, called Gilding Waxes, is designed to add a metallic touch to your painted furniture or decorative pieces with a minimum of fuss. And with metallics still such a strong look on the interiors scene, we’re predicting this fabulous range will be a big hit!
“I’m so excited about the launch of these new waxes. Gilding Waxes are quite different to gilding leaf and leaf has a harder and shinier look to it. Waxes like these have a much softer look and one that really subtly brings out a gilded effect,” says Annie, who has over 1,500 stockists across the globe.
With five fabulous shades (warm gold, bright gold, dark silver, bright silver and copper), upcycling enthusiasts will be rather giddy about the endless possibilities that await them with this fun collection. “They come in a small tube, but this tube goes a long way! I can’t wait to see what people create,” says Annie.
Perfect for DIY projects, you can also apply the wax to ornate carvings and mouldings to enhance texture and detailing throughout the home. Alternatively, you can also decorate with gilded shapes, lines and designs using an Annie Sloan stencil (or even your own!).
