A sensation in the US furniture refinishing industry, Dixie Belle Chalk Paint is an eco-friendly chalk mineral paint that requires minimal prep.
You’ll find plenty of choice, with a beautiful palette of 69 colours, even more colour recipes, as well as a whole host of metallics, accenting and finishing products to help you create sensational furniture pieces.
Indulge your creativity on a variety of projects, from wood and laminates/melamine/plastics to glass, ceramics, metal, and even fabric and leather, the list goes on…
Before you begin painting it is very important to thoroughly clean your furniture piece – clean with Dixie Belle White Lightning before sanding your item. A range of sanding products are available such as Rad pads or sanding sponges.
Dixie Belle Chalk Paint is thick, so a little goes a long way. If you like a thinner look just add a little water and stir. Need it thicker – just leave off the lid. Most pieces will take one to two coats for full coverage. Sometimes, after the first coat dries it will look blotchy but, don’t worry, after the second coat it will be perfect! You may also see brushstrokes whilst painting, but as the paint dries they will disappear – Dixie Belle Paint is a great self-levelling paint.
There is no particular need to seal, after its 30-day cure time, Dixie Belle Paint is durable just the way it is. However, if your project is likely to get above average wear and tear, consider applying a Clear Coat or Gator Hide for added protection. If you’re painting on a shiny surface (eg. glass, veneer, melamine, tile, ceramic, metal, plastic etc) then we would advise that you use Dixie Belle’s adhesion primer, Slick Stick, prior to painting for a long-lasting, well adhered result.
