As the owner of a Poppie's Chalk Paint Powder, I am so excited that chalk paint has made it to the general population finally!!!!
Honestly, Chalk Paint had almost a cult type of following for the past 5 years. YIKES!!!
It's great that you can now find it in ready made versions on the shelves of Walmart, Lowes and your craft stores. Along with the new general awareness of this awesome time saving product people are beginning to ask a whole bunch of questions like;
"So Just What is Chalk Paint, Is it REALLY worth the High price tag and why is it right for me"? This my friend just tickles me pink because frankly there's nothing I like talking about better then chalk-painting except Jesus!
Chalk Paint™ is a name given by Annie Sloan, an English designer, to a decorative paint she developed 20 years ago. However, all the rest of us chalk- painting furniture like to think of it as a broad category for a type of decorative finish that we achieve from paint that has minerals in it, to give it a matte, smooth velvety finish.
Chalk Painting, along with Milk Painting, have been around for centuries. They weren't just invented 20 years ago. However, Annie Sloan’s paint was packaged and marketed then and was the first of its kind to hit the retail market and she trademarked the name.
