With the announcement of the 2015 Pantone Colour of the Year (the reddy-brown and much maligned Marsala) Annie Sloan’s legendary decorative paint range now includes a rich and warm Burgundy.
Annie says: “Burgundy, as the name suggests, is a rich, claret red which I was drawn to because of its classical French Napoleonic connections.”
The Chalk Paint range comprises 32 decorative and historic colours and the colours can easily be mixed together to provide an even larger colour palette. As Annie explains: “Burgundy is a timeless favourite, a regal colour that works well on its own, or with my own favourite pairing for this colour – Château Grey. Add some Primer Red and a little Old White and the colour takes on a more contemporary personality, becoming a delicious, raspberry pink like Marsala, the Pantone Colour of the Year, giving a little shocking jolt to a room!”
Chalk Paint can be applied straight on to furniture without the need to prime, sand, or even remove old wax, paint or varnish — the paint will adhere to wood, plastic, stone, brick, concrete and metal. Much more than just an indoor paint, it lets you instantly upcycle, revamp or redecorate your favourite outdoor piece without sanding or prepping.
The colours have been developed to mix beautifully together so you can either take a colour straight from the tin or create your own by mixing two together. The paint can also be used to achieve a variety of looks and finishes; apply it thickly to create a chippy look or dilute it with water to make a wash. You can even use it to paint and dye fabric! What’s more, it’s water based and eco-friendly, containing virtually no VOCs, and it is highly concentrated to produce extensive covering power.
The best part? The paint dries quickly with a beautifully velvety, matt finish and for most purposes, one coat is enough. So you can easily complete your project in a day and still have paint left over for more projects.
