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! ~ 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 Original White 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. Give the paint ample time to dry!
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!
