Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®️ Demo – The Designers' Studio

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®️ Demo

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Last weekend The Designers’ Studio team collaborated with the talented ladies from Artistique and The Imperfect Parlour for a bespoke workshop for TDS students displaying Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® methods. We had a brilliant turnout from The Designers’ Studio Students and it’s safe to say we all learnt a lot. Jo and Naomi’s explanations and insights were invaluable, they are truly the masters of their trade. During the class there was a giveaway competition and Nadia, a lucky student, won a workshop with Artistique![/vc_column_text][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”30″][vc_media_grid grid_id=”vc_gid:1570529454908-40df130f-3836-9″ include=”4917,4916,4927″][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”30″][vc_column_text]The workshop demo included the basic Annie Sloan techniques that set our imagination alight. We watched demos on Annie’s practical approach to painting to achieve a range of professional, quality finishes without the fuss.


These basic techniques included:​

  • Two-colour distresses/aged look which is Annie’s ‘signature’ finish & Wash Effect

  • Sgraffito technique & One-colour smooth modern look

  • Creating textured paint effect and use of wax to create different colour effects

  • Use of gilding waxes

  • Simple stencil techniques

Here is a before and after of the side table which was transformed in just 2 hours.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”30″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_media_grid element_width=”3″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1570529070595-4ddfa4eb-5711-6″ include=”4918,4913,4912,4911″][nd_options_spacer nd_options_height=”30″][vc_column_text]Keep your eyes peeled for the next workshop!
