Amsterdam Green Chalk Paint® Litre- versus the quart packaging which was retired at the end of 2018. The Amsterdam Green packaged in a Litre is slightly lighter in shade than the
Amsterdam Green that was in a Quart. They are very similar though. The
quart containers were retired at the end of 2018.
According to Annie, Amsterdam Green is a strong, deep green that takes inspiration from painted shutters and doors in Amsterdam and throughout Europe. It is a stylish minimal colour that has made a return to the interior colour palette. It works particularly well with whites and creams and botanical imagery and plants, as well as looking brilliant with earthy yellows and reds - try teaming it with Primer Red, Arles and Old Ochre. It’s also makes a great backdrop to cool blues, such as Provence, Giverny and the purple tones of Emile.
On a side note, I personally love Amsterdam Green with Annie's Black Wax. I feel this color brings energy and a sense of freshness to a space. It makes me get excited about spring and the lush greens and rebirth of plants around me. Consider trying a pop of color in your home. If you are shy - use it on a piece in a foyer or a powder room or just an accent chair. You will still be playing it safe and it won't push you too hard out of your comfort zone if you are conservative and lean more toward neutrals in your home.
PACKAGING CHANGED TO LITERS! ~ More Chalk Paint®.....same price!
Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan is sold all over the world. Russia, Germany, Spain, Australia, South Africa, Japan, Italy, Greece and Mars. (only joking about Mars....but maybe someday!) Through out 2019.....the packaging of paint will be transitioning so all countries are aligned and in the USA, the 32 ounce quart (being a little redundant there......lol) containers will be going to liters...which is around 34 ounces. This means....a little more paint for the same price.
OPENING THE LIDS OFF THE LITRE: Watch this video to show you how best to open so you do not bend the lids. VERY IMPORTANT INFO REGRADING OPENING THE LIDS ON THE LITRES:To remove the lid on the liters, gently wedge a paint can opener or a blunt object, like the end of a spoon's handle under the lid. Gently and patiently, go all the around the lids edge by turning the paint can 360 degrees. This will gently lift the lid without denting it.
Besides the change of more paint in the container - the liter's lids are just a little different and take a softer hand to open and close. Use a paint can opener and wiggle it around the lid completely.
You will find the Amsterdam Green in the liters will be slightly thicker- here are some tips when using:
1. A light touch with your brush is needed. It spreads much more easily than trying to push the paint around. Using an Annie Sloan paint brush is important.
2. A spray bottle will be your new best friend and you may find it will really help if you are painting in a linear motion.
3. Use your spray bottle to wet sand with Annie's sanding pads. You will find that it distresses the paint beautifully!

Don’t forget when purchasing Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan- to consider purchasing her Clear Wax also. Annie’s paint and wax were created to partner perfectly together! The paint itself will harden but the wax will truly protect it! The wax does completely harden and it becomes hard and is water repellent. It is a wonderful protective finish that you can buff once dry- to the sheen you desire.
