You are a valued client and we want to tell you about new products and upcoming events at our store at 7518 Hickman Road in Sherwood Forest Shopping Center -- Central Iowa Headquarters for Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan!
TIP OF THE MONTH
Moderation in all things – that means the temperature where you paint and wax your furniture. Your paint and wax should be stored at normal household moderate temperatures – not in your garage where they will be affected by heat and cold depending on the season. I do not recommend painting outside in the summer. Who wants to pick gnats or cotton tree lint out of your paint? Also heat and breeze can cause your paint to dry too quickly, resulting in dragging paint when you try to touch it up. Room temperature (68-72 degree)Tip wax hitting a 40 degree surface in your garage will result in all kinds of problems as your wax immediately hardens, not giving you time to wipe back the excess!
Black Bristle Paint Brushes: We are moving to a better quality paint brush being offered at the shop. We will still offer the inexpensive chip brushes, but now we have a thicker, moderately priced 1 and 2 inch paint brush. This is an alternative to the inexpensive, disposable chip brushes and the very high grade and more expensive Annie Sloan® paint brushes.
