Ok, so I gotta admit when I first started with the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint I wasn't totally sold on the dark wax. I like the colors so much I didn't want to see them change.
But I've been converted. Simply because after my training I learned that this paint is so much more than paint. Now I'm having a blast discovering all the 'looks' you can achieve.
What one of my faves?? Graphite straight to dark wax.
TIP: I find if I thin out the wax a bit with mineral spirits it's easier to achieve a smooth, non-streaky finish. And remember to be generous with your first coat so that the wax won't dry out before you wipe it back. And if it does a bit of mineral spirits helps revive it.
So, here's a gorgeous buffet I worked on this week:
Isn't it gorgeous! I love the soft black you get with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Graphite straight to dark wax.
