I bought a small can each of red, blue and yellow, with a can of white too, and have been putting the many surface options to the test. These vintage wooden bowling balls were a good place to start. I painted, mixed, thinned, washed and layered as the mood took me and I am so happy with the cheerful result.
Annie Sloan is UK based, but is now being manufactured here in South Africa too. The Annie Sloan South Africa website has a list of local stockists It’s a brand with an fascinating story – Annie the artist who created her own Chalk Paint®. Mainstream paint stores turned it down, but it’s become a world-wide sensation being stocked by privately owned decor and craft shops. I bought mine locally at Loula in Hillcrest. La Maison in Durban North are stockists too. Go online for more practical info about the product.
