Annie Sloan’s Smooth Finish Flat Brush

Finally the paint brush you have been waiting for to achieve a smooth finish with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan has arrived!

Annie Sloan Flat Brush New

The FLAT BRUSHES feature advanced synthetic fibers for the ultimate silky finish.  They are designed to work specifically with Chalk Paint® to achieve a smooth modern finish.  The brushes are shaped to hold a lot of paint and apply the paint evenly, eliminating brush marks.

The comfortable handles are pre-drilled so the paint brushes can be hung to dry.  Both are light weight, the small brush weighing under 2 ounces and the large brush weighing just over 3 ounces helping to avoid hand fatigue while you paint.

Chalk Paint® is a versatile decorative paint that was designed  for a variety of finishes (wash, textured, impasto crackle, etc).  It is important to use the right tools and techniques to achieve your desired result.

For a smooth paint application be sure to use the right brush and paint more traditionally in the direction of the wood grain or the previously painted finish.

Since the paint was designed to thicken as it dries (to show more texture and brush stroke) it is helpful to keep the paint ‘open’ while you work for the smoothest finish–especially on a hot summer day!  This can be done by introducing water into the equation either by thinning your paint with water, working with a damp brush, or lightly tipping your brush in water each time you re-load it with paint.
