These flexible sanding sponges are great for distressing Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. They fit comfortably in the palms of your hands, and they also fit a standard-sized palm sander! You can rinse these out and reuse them, and they really last a long time. You can't beat the quality for the price! We like to moisten these before sanding over Chalk Paint®, and lightly skim the entire surface of the furniture. That will create a super smooth finish without texture.
