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.
Where To Buy Chalk Paint _ Annie Sloan has the copyright on the term "chalk paint" so other vendors use slight variations on the name.
