Lingering Light Studios only uses non toxic materials to decorate our furniture. The base coats are painted with Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paints which are water based, eco-friendly and odourless. These paints are inspired by 18th and 20th Century decor and design and have a beautiful velvety, matt finish. The decorative elements of the designs are painted with either Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paints or using gouache paint, which is similar to watercolour. All items are treated with wax to give them a durable, water repellent finish. The wax also gives them a lovely luminous sheen.
To help you preserve the beauty of your Lingering Light piece, here are a few tips:
• Use a micro-fibre cloth to dust and clean your furniture.
• Don't use bleach or polishes on the surface. It has been properly cured with wax but it is always sensible to treat painted furniture with caution – unless you want to add to the distressed look!
• Don't place extremely hot items directly onto the surface of the furniture as this may cause marking.
• If you want to add to the shine, use a layer of clear wax (we use Annie Sloan’s Clear Wax) and then buff it off.
