Is waxing necessary?

Yes, waxing furniture painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is an important step to protect the paint, provide durability and achieve the desired appearance. Here are the top reasons why waxing Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is highly recommended:

  • Protection: Applying wax to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint forms a protective layer over the paint. This helps prevent stains, liquid splashes, dirt and general wear and tear. The wax acts as a barrier between the surface of the furniture and external influences, making the paint last longer.

  • Durability: Wax gives extra durability to the paint. It forms a tough and resilient finish that can withstand daily use and its associated wear and tear. The wax layer protects the paint against scratches, abrasions and other damage.

  • Color saturation: Wax can intensify and saturate the color of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. It gives the paint a nice shine and depth, making the color more vibrant. It can also help achieve a desired aged or patinated effect, depending on the wax color chosen.

  • Finish and Texture: Wax can soften the finish of the furniture and give it a pleasant texture. It provides a smooth and silky surface that is pleasant to the touch and visually appealing. The wax can also help smooth out any irregularities or brushstrokes in the paint.

  • Easy Maintenance: Wax provides an easy to maintain finish. It can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth and mild soap. If necessary, additional wax can be applied to renew the protection and finish.

Thus, waxing furniture painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is an essential step to protect the paint, provide durability, enhance color and achieve the desired finish. It is a valuable investment in the preservation of your painted furniture pieces.
