Annie Sloan & Artisan Enhancements

Annie Sloan & Artisan Enhancements

Wow! Have we been busy this past month. Clay and I have been to Atlanta to train on a new product that we now carry in the store. Artisan Enhancements!  As everyone knows, we truly believe that Annie Slaon Chalk Paint® is best paint in the world. It’s versatility , dependability and durability  cannot be surpassed with any other paint in the market. Artisan Enhancements is not a replacement for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® but a complimentary product that can be used with her paints.

Artisan Enhancements are extremely versatile.  My favorite is the fine stone. It is gorgeous alone or tinted with Annie’s paint. Perfect medium to be pushed through stencils to create an old world look. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® is great for furniture restoration and is probable best known for that, but in reality is so much more and so is Artisan Enhancements. Clay just finished a beautiful canvas piece using Annie Slaon Chalk Paint® Provence, AE fine stone pushed through a stencil, AE crackle tex painted with Chalk Paint® Old White and chipped with a natural sea sponge. He added AE gold foil and finished with AE scumble tinted with Chalk Paint® Graphite/Coco mixture.  He has named his art creation “A Cloudy Day”. I know this sounds like a lot but it is easy to create and a great project for a cold day or sign up for a class in November.

Now for those of you that don’t like to wax. AE has a clear finish that is water based and made with soya. It is organic and virtually no odor. So what is stopping you, stop by the store and check out all of the new products.

Speaking of new. Burgundy is now available and on our shelf. Very rich and perfect for the upcoming holidays. Several samples now available in the store.

Until next time, happy painting.
