Anne Sloan Chalk Paint Workshop…


Yesterday I joined the ladies at our shop Hip Chick Designs for an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Workshop.


 
 
 
 
Every month Carrie – owner of Hip Chick Designs – offers this very popular class to all of our customers and friends.  It is an excellent opportunity to get a hands on experience to work with this awesome paint!

Here is Carrie telling us how she used ASCP to paint her old suede boots! Yes! You can paint fabric and even suede with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I told you this stuff is AMAZING! Visit this post from last October that shares more amazing application ideas.

We were able to work with 3 different techniques including Two Color Distressed, Heavy Texture with Dark Wax, and Smooth Finish.

Here are my sample molding boards showing the first step of each technique…

After each board dried we were able to apply the finishing steps of waxing and distressing…

I love the look of each technique! That is just one of the wonderful aspects of chalk paint…the ability to achieve so many finishes, so quickly and easily!

If you have not tried out Annie Sloan Chalk Paint yet…what are you waiting for?!? It is so easy to use and offers such beautiful and versatile finishes. I promise you will love it! Attending a local hands on workshop is a great way to get started.
