Shake the tin well and stir with a broad flat stirrer. Apply the paint with a synthetic brush, foam roller or spray gun. Occasionally, tannin rich timber may leach and require a sealant to be applied prior to painting. Test your piece first, and if so use a stain blocker, primer or undercoat.
Ensure surfaces to be painted are clean and free from peeling paint, mould, dirt, dust and grease. Sanding or priming is generally unnecessary, as the paint will stick to most surfaces. Painting on plastic, glass and metal may require use of an appropriate base coat.
Number of coats
In optimum conditions, the paint is touch dry in 30 minutes and can be recoated after 2 hours. Two coats are generally sufficient to achieve excellent coverage and opacity.
This tin will cover about 7 to 8 square metres depending on the surface.
Allow 7 days to fully cure before use (in optimum conditions).

In short, no! That is the main benefit of using our dedicated furniture paints.
For most pieces, a good clean is sufficient - the paint is formulated to bond to surfaces. The only times I would recommend you use a primer is over metal, glass, ceramic, bleeding timbers such as Indonesian or mahogany species, which tend to bleed through any paint finish.
In those cases I would recommend using an appropriate base coat or with the bleeding timbers apply one or two coats of Polyseal which incredibly acts as both a blocker/primer and sealant. Who doesn't love a three in one?!
The Mineral Paint has a built-in satin sealant so it's perfect for those of you who want to flip your pieces quickly and want an 'all-in-one' type paint.
The Mineral Paint line comes in different shades to the Chalk and Clay Paint line and is available in the 500ml size only.
Chalk and Clay Paint is a great paint for those of you who love a rustic, velvety, chalky, matte finish.
Yes. Chalk paint is porous, you'll need to seal with a non-toxic topcoat from our finishes collection which includes wax, Polyseal or oil.
This is diffiicult to answer, but to give you a rough estimate this is what I've used for typically sized projects.

If you're applying Mineral Paints, use the synthetic brushes.
You can also use a quality mohair or foam roller if you're more of a roller fan.
Yep you sure can! It takes a while to get the hang of the technique but it will significantly reduce your labour time.
I personally recommend using an air compressor powered Low Volume Low Pressure (LVLP) gravity fed gun with a 1.0mm - 2.0mm tip.
But why? The reason I prefer it over an electric powered spray gun is the level of control you have over the finish and the paint output. It's also easier and lighter to use than most electric powered guns which tend to be quite bulky. Also, the gravity helps guide the paint down into the tip where electric units need to suck the paint up and it often leads to paint wastage.

Yes you can! If using Mineral Paint, it should be fine as it is. Be sure to add only small amounts of water to the paint as needed when applying coats, do not dilute the paint too much for an optimal outcome.
Yes, if the furniture is sheltered and not in direct sunlight. If exposed to full sun then our paint can still be used but we recommend a UV protective topcoat sealant.
This was my first attempt at upcycling a piece for a bathroom renovation. While it’s not perfect- the paint definitely is! Easy to prep, easy to paint and excellent colour. Has given me confidence to keep going. Highly recommend- even for novices like me! (Photos don’t the colour justice!)
Previously I have upcycled a few items for myself using chalk paint. I decided to research into it and came across this product. What can i say. I did 2 tall boys using this paint. I had no idea how much a would need and so opted to get 3 x 250 ml cans. For both sets of drawers i only used less than one can. The main parts i did two coats and the drawer fronts i did 3 coats. The results were amazing. They look like they have been spray painted. I would highly recommend this paint. Easy to use. One of my tall boys were originally chalk painted and so i rubbed it back somewhat before applying the mineral paint. The other set was dark brown wood which i also rubbed down before painting. I wiped both sets down with mineral turpentine. Even though they were different stages to begin with both sets look downright beautiful now.
The actual product is amazing, but I did find the colour to be a lot brighter than expected.
