Covering the Basics _ Now before I get into the comparison, I want to start with sharing a few basics about both paints in case you’re not familiar with chalk paint. Both the Annie Sloan chalk paint and the Rust_Oleum version allow for minimal prep work. No sanding is required, no primer needed. You just grab your piece of furniture and start painting. Both can be applied to a variety of surfaces, such as wood, glass, metal, ceramic, and even plastic. Both can be easily distressed for a vintage look. Both are low_odor and easy to clean up. Both are supposed to dry in a matte finish. The Annie Sloan chalk paint retails for า for 32 oz and can generally only be purchased at a painting boutique or shop. The Rust_Oleum chalk paint retails for มቋ for 30 oz and can be purchased on Amazon, as well as many home improvement stores.
What is Chalk Paint? _ Originally developed by the paint brand Annie Sloan, this type of paint gives surfaces a dreamy, matte look. It's often used with soft wax, which seals the paint and leaves a silky finish. Besides being low_VOC and water_based, its thick consistency makes it easy to use, with little to zero prep involved, and a low propensity for drips — which makes both painting itself, not to mention cleanup, easy.
