Annie Sloan Lacquer is designed to go over Chalk Paint® for wood or concrete surfaces. This is clear matte lacquer but there is a very slight sheen because we want to offer some strength. A matte finish is less strong than a shiny finish generally. As a guideline we suggest this will cover approx 12 square meters but this will vary according to the absorbency of the floor. Not suitable for areas of high water such as bathrooms. Results may vary. We suggest rolling lacquer on with a foam roller using multiple thin coats.
