Autentico Vintage is our classic chalk paint. Over 35% chalk together with water, pigment and resins makes a paint which is perfect for creating authentic paint finishes that require decorative techniques such as sanding through, crackling, washes and many other techniques. Just like other products, the quality of the ingredients makes all the difference; Autentico Vintage is simply the best paint for all decorative techniques. Comprised of a palette of more than 150 colors with outstanding coverage and adherence, Autentico Vintage has been the leader in “chalk paints” for many years.
When using Autentico Vintage our classic chalk paint there's no need to sand (in 99% of the cases) in fact sanding can open up the previously sealed piece and actually create bleeding. You do however have to clean your piece by first vacuuming and then use Omniclean to get off all the dirt, grime and if the former owner of the piece you're painting used furniture polish that contained dimethicone a silicone that can really affect the finish, Omniclean will remove that.
To apply our wax all you need is a natural bristle brush and I like to use a piece of cardboard as a pallet (this way you're not dipping your brush right into the can of wax and contaminating it), scoop some wax out and put on the palette, dip your brush into your wax and brush on a thin, consistent coat. Let dry which can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours depending on the weather and humidity. Once dry you can buff to a beautiful sheen or leave as is for a flat, matte look.
