The soft tones and gentle texture of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ is evident in every image throughout the book. Filled with 200 inspiring images, Annie Sloan shares her 40 years of experience and teaches us various techniques, including distressing, color washing, gilding, découpage, stenciling.. even dyeing fabric with paint, and more. i was particularly interested in experimenting with the Annie Sloan unique colour palette, and learning more about mixing colours, as well as using pops of colour from the palette in unexpected ways ~ such as the project found on page 65 in the 'Boho Chic' section, where Annie uses a pop of green inside a side table drawer. These details and attention to the use of colour and technique is signature Annie Sloan style.
There is a lot packed into this thoughtful book, and I look forward to sitting with a cup of tea, and reading through every project in detail once again. Annie Sloan gives even the faint of heart first-timer the confidence through detailed images, descriptions and steps to master a project they may be dreaming of, and for those of you wishing to be challenged with depth and detail.. there is plenty being offered to satisfy all the way to professional refinishing.
