California Prop 65 Warning - Visit HERE.    THIS COLOR HAS CHANGED since 2018!  

Primer Red is a deep, red ochre in the Chalk Paint® palette.   Primer Red is a colour found in practically every culture, appearing in everything from Venetian palaces to Vietnamese temples, where red earths were plentiful and relatively easy to come by. Use it for rustic pieces or as a base for sophisticated colours like Château Grey or Versailles. It also works beautifully under gilding.

Since red earth pigments were plentiful and relatively easy to come by centuries ago, and only people with significant wealth had the funds to paint their interior or exteriors- left over paint was always saved and dumped into a community bucket- that the painter would use to "prime" for his next job. After mixing many left over colors from various paint jobs- all with a similar earthy color to them - you would get a similar color to this. So, this color is often associated with the color for priming furniture and as the base coat for gilding. It is a wonderful color on its own or as a base for other colors particularly when distressing. Annie Sloan's Primer Red is stunning with Dark Wax! I love to pair it with Graphite, as shown on the Bombay dresser below.

PACKAGING CHANGED TO LITERS! ~   1 Litre will cover around 120 square feet...give or take!

OPENING & CLOSING of the LIDS on Litre containers: CLICK and  Watch this video HERE on our YouTube channel to see how it is done   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. 

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 our 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- 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 Primer Red 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! 

Primer Red is a great color to have as a staple in your painting pantry since "red" is one of the primary colors. This means it is a base for mixing with other colors to achieve custom colors. For instance:

Custom Color of Deep Purple or Dark Plum Chalk Paint®: Mix 2 parts Primer Red with 1 part Graphite

Custom Color of Aubergine/Eggplant Chalk Paint®: Mix 2 parts Primer Red with 1 part Florence

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.
