I'm ready to try my first chalk paint project and am deciding on paint. Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has tried Vintage Market and how it compares to other chalk paints.
I know that @Anne has experience with this paint from her blog post here: http://www.whitelacecottage.com/2014/03/vintage-market-furniture-paint-lucky-junk/ . Anne, do you have any advice for K?
@ I went to Anne's website where she showed a picture frame that she had painted with Vintage Market. It looked really nice....thanks for telling me about whitelacecottage.
Never tried Vintage Market. I love Annie Sloan. Hard to beat.....it's great paint and I'm not paid to say that nor do I sell it. I'm a painter. :)
@Paula Driesell Thanks for your response. I'll take Annie Sloan into consideration as well as Vintage Market. I know AS paint is very popular.
I hate promoting others' very expensive goods, but I love Annie Sloan the best, but I have experiments with mixing my own variety, but when I do, I sand first. Sometimes I sand before Annie S. and it does make a tremendous difference IMO. I think I may try the Miss Mustard Seed variety soon, but have not yet. I like their colors a lot.
Also, on this site, there are recipes to make it yourself. I have done that as well, using calcium carbonate, as one ingredient.
I have been playing around with some of those DIY recipes that I mentioned. They work to my satisfaction, but I'm still playing with them.
I have used a little flat paint sampler for only a few bucks, from Ace Hardware - sometimes I mix it with some Annie Sloan, or sometimes I add the calcium carbonate (make sure it's really powdered well) to the regular flat paint, or sometimes I just put it all together. Haha. Like a mad scientist - and play around.
The latter is what I used to make a turquoise, beachy night table/accent table. It's on Etsy, Tampa Tweaks. I would like you to see it because it's from my 'mad scientist' recipe. I love the way it turned out just as much, if not better, than some of my 100% Annie Sloan work. I wish I had taken a before and after pic to put here. I'll try to remember those things for Hometalk.
Thanks for asking.
Annie Sloan, Only! Swear. Mess around with the others, but i ended up with Annie. No one can touch it..
Love the Vintage Market & Design line.Can't be beat IMO
Thanks for your feedback. It's hard to find anyone who has used anything other than Annie Sloan.. Have you used AS? If so, how does it compare with VIntage.
I use VMD a lot. It works very well. I do sand and prep though, but I do that using ASP too.
