Annie’s new waxes have arrived at Chalk It Up Norcross! We have been playing with the new Black and White Waxes, and honestly, we can not choose a favorite. They both offer amazing and very different options for furniture, cabinets, and accessories.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS!
To apply the new Black Wax, use Clear Wax first, just like when using Dark Wax. Apply black in small sections, then wipe away. When using Black Wax over Graphite paint, the effect will be Black Black.
Use the White Wax directly over raw wood to create a “limed” look, plus it can be used over any of the Chalk Paint® colors to create a soft effect.
Apply the waxes with a sweeping motion, using the side of the brush, without baring down hard on the brush. After waxing a small section, simply wipe away excess, turning your cloth to a clean area often. Allow clear wax to dry at least 15 minutes before buffing it you want to achieve a sheen. Wait not longer that 24 hours to buff.
WE ALSO HAVE THE AWESOME NEW WASHABLE SANDING PADS AND ROLLERS!
Annie Sloan Sanding Pads come in packs of three, with one pad of each grade – fine (220 grit), medium (120 grit) and coarse (60 grit).
The fine pad can be used for light distressing or flat finishes, and for a delicate worn effect you can use the medium grade pad. If you prefer a rustic heavily distressed look the coarse pad will help make stunning results easy to achieve.
Annie’s high quality sponge rollers are the perfect complement to the Annie Sloan Stencil collection. Available in Small and Large, they each feature an ergonomic wooden handle.
Refill sponge packs are also available in both sizes and contain seven replacement sponge heads per pack.
