These brushes come in three different sizes and are perfect for any Chalk Paint project, whether it's your first attempt or you're a seasoned pro. Their thick, tapered bristles are, according to Annie, "strong and firm, but pliable." It gives you maximum control, reducing brush strokes and helping the paint to go on smoothly.
We'd been saving this piece specifically for our new brushes. It's a six drawer chest with two slim drawers (for gloves, perhaps?) The pieced veneer created a unique problem; patterns like this can sometimes make it more difficult for the paint to look smooth. Enter the Annie Sloan paint brush...
We decided to use Country Grey and added highlights in Old White, with some light sanding on the edges.
Beware to anyone who wants to try this look; you have absolutely no control over the finished look and you can't remove the dark wax using clear wax, as you normally can. You get one shot to get the look you want, but if you're confident enough to try it it can create a beautiful worn finish.
Remember to come in the shop tomorrow (Tuesday, May 1) to get an Annie Sloan paint brush so you can create your own Chalk Paint masterpiece!
