Annie Sloan 911

Friday, February 15, 2013

Hey, does anyone out there know why this is happening to a piece of pine furniture I'm painting?
I'm using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and I did sand it slightly before I started painting  but for some reason there are pink streaks throughout the paint. 




This photo was taken after 4 coats of chalk paint.  Really Annie Sloan?  $35 per quart and this is what I get after 4 coats?

Any advice? Leave me a comment or email me at thegreenroominteriors@gmail.com

Have a great weekend - I'm headed out of town for a little family time.

I can't remember where I've seen this, but I know I have. Turns out you have to prime with a barrier coat over lots of kinds of wood, which is sort of a huge drag when the product advertises that you don't need to do any prep beyond cleaning.

Pine is the worst wood for "bleeding" because it's a soft wood - as opposed to most of the others. It's obvious you're discouraged and probably don't want to start over.

That is so frustrating. I have never used it.

I would email Annie Sloan. I bet she would tell you what the problem is and hopefully send more paint. They do say that you don't need a primer from what I remember.

This happened to me once with "cherry" stained chairs. Luckily for me, it was bleeding into primer and all was good after that.
I would ask for more paint since they claim that priming is not necessary and since its kinda spendy.

Here's the link on bleed through from Annie Sloan's website:

I have no advice either, but I know the store that sells it here is very helpful (a friend of mine bought some and they said to call with any questions). Have you tried calling the store you purchased the paint from? Total bummer. :(

Ugh....I'm waiting to see how this one works out. I haven't used it, either.

I took the AS class & they said to shellac before using their paint on stained woods to prevent bleed through. I know I had to shellac my knotty pine paneling before painting to avoid bleed through. The painter said primer was not enough for resin based wood like pine.

Maison Decor's blog has discussed this --

If you have a piece of furniture that starts to bleed while you are painting (which means a discoloration comes through your lovely paint job), stop painting! Get a can of Zinsser Clear Shellac and go over the entire piece. It will dry quickly and then you can resume your paint job.

it may not be the paint . It may be the pine or was there any other finish on the wood before you painted ?
Even though you lightly sanded you may need to strip it first .....then prime it before you paint it .

good luck !
