Annie Sloan – Beyond Chalk Paint
Many of you know, I now work part-time at our local library.
This opportunity has opened up vistas of information for
my imagination. Great books on home decor, gardening,
cooking, crafting and more are available to all whether
written this year or twenty to thirty years ago.
One of my searches was Annie Sloan. I found several books
in her repertoire spanning from the 1980’s to the present.
What became clear for me was Annie Sloan has been
a pioneer of decorative painting showing techniques
we too can use to make our home, furniture and our
gardens uniquely our own.
The books I found include:
The Complete book of
Decorative Paint Techniques
The Practical Guide to
Decorative Antique Effects
A Practical Guide
Inspirations in Painted
Complete Book of Decocrative
Color in Decoration
Each book is quite detailed in step-by-step techniques to create
amazing effects with paint on everything from furniture to
bowls to garden pottery. I am very thankful to Annie Sloan for
her talent and influence with Chalk Paint and now more so
with her many wonderful, instructional books. She makes
attempting these techniques quite accessible.
