Soft Terracotta/plaster Effect Wall


August 16, 2020

How about this gorgeous backdrop against the fresh, vibrant and earthy setting in this space!

This romantic, terracotta plaster effect wall has been created using a combination of the following shades of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – Paloma, Scandinavian Pink and Henrietta. This effect has been achieved by applying a base coat of Scandinavian Pink and addition of diluted Henrietta in a haphazard manner on top, after drying of the base coat. A 1:1 ratio between Chalk Paint and water is an ideal starting point for a project like this. While the paint is still wet, crumpled paper can be used to rub off some of it and create texture. After the initial two coats are dry a final wash with Paloma will provide the desired plaster effect.

In case the wall being painted is in an area exposed to the elements such as sunshine and rain, one should consider using Annie Sloan Matt Chalk Paint Lacquer to ensure sealing of the paint to the surface, adding durability and providing UV protection.

This soft, powdery look is achieved using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint but a similar effect can be created with Annie Sloan Wall Paint as well
