Grey is a cool, fresh and modern grey, with a hint of blue. Suggestive
of the architecture in Chicago. A perfect neutral for industrial
interiors, or muted Scandinavian styling. This color is similar
to what Paris Grey use to be when it was packaged in "Quart" container
prior to the end of 2018...... It is not an absolute exact match, but very similar. Chicago Grey is a cooler tone! It can
reflect some subtle blue if in a room with lots of blues. They will
influence what your eye sees Chicago Grey as. Sort of like holding one
of those little yellow flowers under your chin- we use to call "Butter
cups" when I was a kid. Does that make sense? If it does not...you are
probably much younger than me.

1 Litre will cover around 120 square feet...give or take! After painting, seal indoor furniture with Chalk Paint® Wax. On floors, seal with Chalk Paint® Lacquer.
The change in packaging of the containers of Chalk Paint® will happen throughout 2019 across all of Annie's colors as the US becomes aligned globally. PACKAGING CHANGED TO LITERS! ~
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.
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 Chicago Grey 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.
