That has me baffled for it shouldn’t feel that way. You can get a very fine sandpaper and lightly cross over the cosmetic to voluble it before you apply any more tegument of poly. It’s totally worth it. I had primarily imagination I would use Old White, but after your experience, I think I would do just what you did. Always test, if in doubt! Want to cane more? Each Annie Sloan Stockist can threaten you workshops and practical advice on these and other tips from the Annie Sloan Method. This hardening process is understood as ‘curing’. It will start to harden as the solvents in the wax evaporate. I sure thing would pet to have this as my own. You really did an amazing job. It does seem odd that they are still “chalky” even after the poly though. If I can get that glance religious, then I’ll see what I can do about the rest. Good luck!

Thank Heidi! Oh how neat…yes, I do love my Mason jars. I used basic/least cheap paint at first and it was fine.

You can make your own chalk paint with plaster of Paris , paint and water. However, with the warm, humid weather you have in Florida, I would be a little sensitive about wax in general like you are. I do know her wax is much harder than the beeswax I used (Annie Sloan) on my cabinets the first time. I certainly would love to have this as my own. I don’t know the properties of it. Sadly, though, I have not used the Valspar Chalk Paint so can’t speak about it. Look for a varnish with UV preservation to prevent colour fading. 🙂 Nancy

Hi Amy! If I would hire out painting my cabinets, I would prefer they did not use chalk paint. Using less beeswax, rubbing off less, friction off more, putting it on in a other pattern….no matter what I did, I did not like the issue. When I switched to a different white blush I decided to strain the highest tier/premium plus ultra (the most expensive) and I noticed a difference. Chalk paint is immense for those of us who indigence to cut a few corners with all the prep work professionals do (and don’t have that kind of time or patience). But, I just cut, pasted (wood glue) and clamped them well. Each one I tried something different. 10 years and still going robust. On lyceum furniture, a coat of water-based exterior varnish will protect against shame and keep the finish looking good for longer. I only needful a gallon and I didn’t even use it all (but a quart wouldn’t have been enough). I’m sorry, I’m probably not very much help! Nancy

Chalk Paint® adheres to almost any surface, and there is rarely any need to sand or prime before painting.

Chalk Paint® even works outdoors! It’s distinctly good on brick, concrete, stone and terracotta – and there’s no need to wax.

Hello! Thank you! Hmm, oak can be funny. My cabinets were habit fit and walnut before I wanted to do something to brighten up my kitchen. Mine were painted hoary by a “professional” who did an “okay” job, but it looks copy it needs some ‘dress-up’ work. No reason to discover out those cabinets…I have plenty of other things I still want/want to do! (and yes, it is so crazy expensive to replace them). I hope that helps! Let me know if that answers your questions or if you have any more. Try using a roller (made for cabinet third art) to apply the poly. I just can’t encourage wax on cabinets after my experience. It is custom as well and is all one piece working it’s way around the counter. I love Amy Howard products, and I know the white qualifier you are allude to. One clothes was clear, adieu the chalk paint without any type of sealant was not an option. Before I do anything though, I want to do something about my old harvest gold ‘faux cowhide’ countertop.
