How to Gild Furniture

Annie Sloan demonstrates how to gild painted furniture using a combination of Gilding Waxes for an authentic finish

  1. Paint your piece of furniture moving your brush in every direction for a textured finish.

  2. Once the paint has dried, seal with a coat of clear Chalk Paint® Wax.

  3. Apply Annie Sloan Gilding Wax in two colours (e.g. Bright Gold and Warm Gold) building up the wax in layers for an authentic, uneven look.
