Painting with Shabby Paints


Shabby Paints Chalk-Acrylic Paint– Adheres to almost any surface, laminate, tile, terracotta, wood, glass, Plexiglas, plastic, ceramics, counter-tops, linoleum, metal, tin, concrete, fabric and when cured over a cleaned surface will not peel or scratch off.  It leaves a smooth silky flat finish when dry.  It is flexible and won’t crack when dry.

Directions for Use: Thoroughly clean surface, be sure all grease and oils have been removed first. Stir paint.  Apply with a soft brush or roller.  Let dry then apply second coat if needed.  If the paint is too thick for your liking add a little water or dampen your paint brush for a smooth finish.  Distressing: Distressing after painting is great for a naturally worn look. Use 80-120 grit sandpaper or a dampened sanding block for easier cleanup.  For a different layered, more chippy aged look, distress after your first coat of reVAX or VAX has dried. You can control with pressure how many of the previous layers you want to reveal.
