Question for those who have used chalk paint - - -
I bought some yesterday and am planning on painting a small dresser and 6 dining room chairs. We have an Annie Sloan dealer here and I was able to look at several painted pieces and see the difference with/without wax. I am using a light color and like the dark wax used on pieces with detail (carving, etc.). The girl told me I would first need to wax with the clear then the dark. The wax is $25 each. I know it will last a loooong time, but I'm wondering if any of you have any other (cheaper) wax suggestions. I wouldn't substitute the paint brand, but I'm willing to with the wax (unless someone tells me different).
They also had some great displays where they had created other colors. Pretty!!
Thanks for your help - tina
