Welcome to a new blog series dedicated to the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors.
Here is my disclaimer:
I am not an official Annie Sloan Stockist. I work and sell at a store that carries the paint and I LOVE painting with it. These are my thoughts and my thoughts only. Proceed at your own risk. ;)
This thought popped into my head recently when I was working at the shop. We have painters travel great distances to purchase the paint from the shop and they always as the best questions.
"Does this one cover more like French Linen or Antibes?"
"Which colors go well together?"
So I thought I could take each color one-by-one and give my thoughts and tricks.
Some colors with be introduced on small pieces (like today) and others will be introduced on larger pieces (Pure White coming soon). However, I will go back and repost all pieces I create in that color for easy grouping and comparing. So check back often.
Here is goes:
Color and Wax: Florence with Clear and Dark Wax
Coverage: Very nice - Medium to Thick - Similar to French Linen or Duck Egg as far as coverage. This frame was covered in 1 coat.
Great Pairings: This would be beautiful with Coco and Paris Grey.
Would I use this again?: Yes and often
Final Thoughts: This one is an easy one. No real tricks needed here. However, the original, straight out of the can, color is very shocking. This is a color I will use often but I will always use it with the Dark Wax to calm it down.
FYI...I purchase my Chalk Paint from Carter's Cottage. :)
Here is a sampling of what Florence can do:
