Primer Red is a deep, red ochre in the Chalk Paint® palette.   Primer Red is a colour found in practically every culture, appearing in everything from Venetian palaces to Vietnamese temples, where red earths were plentiful and relatively easy to come by. Use it for rustic pieces or as a base for sophisticated colours like Château Grey or Versailles. It also works beautifully under gilding.

Since red earth pigments were plentiful and relatively easy to come by centuries ago, and only people with significant wealth had the funds to paint their interior or exteriors- left over paint was always saved and dumped into a community bucket- that the painter would use to "prime" for his next job. After mixing many left over colors from various paint jobs- all with a similar earthy color to them - you would get a similar color to this. So, this color is often associated with the color for priming furniture and as the base coat for gilding. It is a wonderful color on its own or as a base for other colors particularly when distressing. Annie Sloan's Primer Red is stunning with Dark Wax!

Don’t forget when purchasing Chalk Paint® Decorative Paint by Annie Sloan- to consider purchasing her Clear Wax also. Annie’s paint and wax were created to partner perfectly together! The paint itself will harden but the wax will truly protect it! The wax does completely harden and it becomes hard and is water repellent. It is a wonderful protective finish that you can buff once dry- to the sheen you desire.

We are sorry – there are NO RETURNs when it comes to paint. You will find this for every stockist. Think about it- would you ever want a quart of paint sent to you - that was shipped to someone else prior? We eliminate any potential issues with this policy. In the state of Tennessee it is the law that we are not allowed to take paint back once it has been shipped or opened by a customer. 

With that said- we apologize for any issues this may cause. Choose wisely and do not spontaneously purchase a color if unsure. OK? In fact- if you need help in deciding- ask us. We are here to help you! 

To find a stockist near you, visit AnnieSloan.com   And if you have someone near you who sells Chalk Paint® - go and see them!  They will have samples you can touch and hold...  Annie Sloan Stockist are special people!  But if you do not have anyone near you that sells the best in the world- well....here we are!
