At The Marmalade House we use a unique and wonderful eco-friendly, chalk-based paint by interiors expert, Annie Sloan.
The paint is quite unlike any other available and is specially blended to give a chalky finish reminiscent of the days of limewash and distemper. It is designed for furniture, floors and walls, but it covers almost any surface with no preparation required. The paint has a lovely thick texture, is easy to use and dries quickly, leaving a soft matt patina, perfect for ageing and distressing.
The colours are specially selected to be used alone or together, layering one over another to give a wonderful antique look. Clear wax can then be applied to seal the paint work and give a mellow, polished effect.
For a more aged and rustic effect, darker waxes can then be carefully added and blended with the clear wax to create a bespoke finish.
