Check out these exciting new chalk finishes and waxes.
Love the look of rustic and antique furniture? Then keep an eye out for Karen Walker Paints Chalk Colour and Wax range, new to the Resene collection of speciality finishes. Karen Walker Chalk Colour paints create a beautiful, velvety matte finish when applied to furniture and other surfaces. The new range is an extension of the already popular Karen Walker Paints colour palette. It’s available in colours from that collection and a selection of Resene colours.
In addition to the new chalk finish, this new range includes two waxes to give furniture extra depth, interest and lustre. For an instantly aged look – think French Provincial-inspired – use a cloth to buff the Karen Walker Vintage Wax all over the furniture, concentrating on the grooves.
Or, simply use Karen Walker Soft Wax to keep the soft look of the Karen Walker Chalk Colour paint finish, with an extra protective layer.
