  • Use one color or layer on colors
  • Distress and apply waxes to create an old world patina
  • Can be used as a wash- dilute with water so when you apply paint it shows the wood grain
  • You can use it as an impasto (thickly), just leave the lid off to thicken. You can learn more about these in a workshop…
  • The colors are very pure, very little black is used in creating the colors, except in Graphite, so the colors can be mixed in any combination

  • The colors are mixed intelligently and Annie Sloan’s web site shows how you can adapt your colors for your use
  • Paint is flexible so you can be creative and change your mind
