Annie Sloan paint is often referred to as a ‘no prep’ paint. However, it must be noted that if the piece you are working on has a lot of dings and scratches, they will still show up after painting. The little bit of effort to fill in scratches and dings ahead of time will have a large impact on the finished product depending out what type of look you are trying to achieve. A piece of furniture that is dirty, dusty, or greasy should be thoroughly cleaned ahead of time to make sure you get the maximum benefit of the Annie Sloan paint.
Annie Sloan paint is thicker than most other paints. It shows the brush strokes. You can thin it out with water to lessen this effect. Annie Sloan paint can also be used on fabric and has a feel similar to soft leather when finished.
