Fusion Mineral Paint is such a fabulous eco-friendly product to use on your furniture projects. But don’t stop there, this paint can be used on many different surfaces. The paint is made with actual mineral pigment so the colors are vivid and don’t fade. There are zero VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) in the paint so there is no heavy paint smell. Also with zero VOC’s, there are no solvents released into the air when it dries. You can paint right in the house with no fear of fumes. The paint is formulated to dry with its own topcoat so there is no need to seal it. There are so many products in the Fusion Mineral Paint line.
Do I need to prep?
People often ask if they need to prep first before painting. The answer is always YES! A little prep goes a long way in making sure that your painted pieces stay beautiful for years to come. At the very least, you must clean your pieces well with a degreaser. Below is a prep guide to show what you need to do for different surfaces.
How much paint will I need?
Fusion Mineral Paint has amazing coverage. You won’t need as much paint as you think to complete your project. Just remember, less is more. Two thin coats of paint is what you’re striving for to get a smooth finish. The first coat will look streaky but the second coat will smooth everything out and make it look very smooth. And when painting in thin coats, you won’t see the brush strokes after it dries. See the Coverage Chart below to see how much paint you will need for the size of the project you have.
