Annie Sloan Lacquer is a robust, matt varnish with a very slight sheen for added strength. It goes on perfectly clear and dries quickly. Use it over Chalk Paint® on surfaces that will see a lot of wear – such as floors and stairs. For best results, apply two coats. To maintain your finish, use mild soapy water and avoid harsh chemicals. Not suitable for areas of high water use such as bathrooms. Not suitable for outdoor use.
To achieve Annie's signature look, first apply a coat of Clear Soft Wax, followed by the Dark Soft Wax. Both can be applied with an Annie Sloan Wax Brush or lint-free cloth. Wipe off any excess (you can use the Clear Soft Wax to take more off if you need to). Leave the Dark Soft Wax in the recesses to create a great antique look. Soft Wax is not suitable for outdoor use. After care: wipe clean with a damp cloth. For tough marks, use a proprietry spray cleaner and rewax.
