FRESCO - Fusion Mineral Paint
Jennylyn's European styling Fresco is an amazing, brand new product from Fusion Mineral Paint. Fresco gives you the perfect sea swept, weathered, worn and rustic texturized look. Fresco is 100% natural and contains no VOCs.
Depending on your mix and application, you will get a different result: crackled heavy texture, flat matte chalky finish, or sea swept. The small package will make 1 pint of the sea swept or crackled heavy texture look, or 5 pints of flat matte chalky finish. Enough to paint a large 7 foot wardrobe!
For a crackled heavy texture (3rd picture) mix 1 part Fresco to 2 parts Fusion Mineral Paint. Apply a thick (2-3mm) layer of mixture to your paint-ready surface. Allow to set for 10-20 minutes. Knock down any heavy lumps by passing your brush over them. The heavier the texture, the larger the cracks. Applying sunlight or heat will increase the crackling effect.
For a flat matte chalky finish (4th picture) mix 1 part Fresco to 8 parts Fusion Mineral Paint. Apply the mixture in various directions for a hand-painted look immediately upon application. If any lumps occur, brush them out. If using the included scoop, add 4 scoops per pint of paint to achieve this look. Add more or less as desired.
For a sea swept look (5th picture) mix 1 part Fresco to 2 parts Fusion Mineral Paint. Apply the mixture to your paint-ready surface. Allow to set for 10-20 minutes, then knock down any heavy lumps by passing your brush over them. Allow to fully dry, then continue with additional colours and layers of paint. Fresco is not required in the additional layers of paint. Tip: Stippling adds texture! Complete the look by wet sanding to expose your multiple layers of paint and texture. For the best results, use a 200 grit sanding sponge. For antiquing, use our Espresso Wax or Antiquing Glaze to enhance the details.
Available in 2 different sizes: 75g or 400g.
