WE ARE ALWAYS ADDING TRENDY, NEW AND POPULAR COLORS TO OUR LINE OF PAINT.

OUR PAINT IS ALSO DESIGNED TO BE MIXED TOGETHER TO CREATE ENDLESS COLOR COMBINATIONS

ADD ANGORA WHITE TO ANY COLOR TO LIGHTEN IT, OR ADD SHADOW TO DARKEN.  TRY MIXING BARN DOOR RED WITH 14K YELLOW GOLD TO CREATE A VIBRANT ORANGE, OR MIX RICH NAVY WITH BARN DOOR RED FOR A BEAUTIFUL PURPLE.  THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.

POOR PAINT ADHESION IS MOST LIKELY CAUSED BY GREASE OR OIL ON THE SURFACE.  CLEAN YOUR SURFACE USING A STRONG CLEANER SUCH AS TSP AND BE SURE TO RINSE THOROUGHLY.

DON’T WORRY!  JUST PAINT IT AGAIN.  YOU CAN PAINT RIGHT OVER AN ALREADY PAINTED OR WAXED SURFACE.

YES, YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN!  IT MAY TAKE A BIT MORE ELBOW GREASE BECAUSE YOU ARE SANDING THROUGH A LAYER OF WAX, BUT IT CAN BE DONE

YES! HOUSE&CANVAS FURNITURE PAINT IS WATER BASED, ULTRA LOW VOC AND VIRTUALLY ODORLESS.

HOUSE&CANVAS FURNITURE PAINT IS DURABLE ON ITS OWN, BUT WILL SCUFF, WEAR AND CHIP WITH TIME (WHICH MAY ADD TO THE ‘DISTRESSED LOOK’ OF YOUR PIECE!).  OUR WAX IS SO SMOOTH, QUICK AND EASY TO APPLY, WE RECOMMEND WAXING EVERYTHING TO GIVE YOUR PIECE A LAYER OF PROTECTION. A SECOND COAT OF FURNITURE WAX  IS RECOMMENDED FOR SURFACES THAT ARE HIGH TRAFFIC OR SUBJECT TO WEAR AND TEAR.

NO!  YOU CAN APPLY THE TINTED WAXES DIRECTLY TO THE PAINTED SURFACE!

THIS IS CALLED BLEEDING – IT HAPPENS FROM TIME TO TIME WITH OLD FURNITURE THAT HAS A REDDISH STAIN OR WITH KNOTTY WOODS. THIS IS THE NATURAL WOODS TANNINS THAT ARE SHOWING THROUGH AND THE ONLY WAY TO GET RID OF THEM IS TO SEAL THEM WITH SHELLAC FOUND AT MOST HARDWARE STORES.

HOUSE&CANVAS FURNITURE PAINT IS WATER BASED, SO YOU CAN CLEAN YOUR BRUSH OR OTHER APPLICATORS WITH JUST MILD DISH SOAP AND WATER.  IF YOU ARE USING A NATURAL BRISTLE BRUSH, YOU CAN ALSO USE A MILD SHAMPOO.

YOU CAN EASILY MIX HOUSE&CANVAS FURNITURE PAINT WITH HOUSE&CANVAS CLEAR FURNITURE WAX TO COLOR YOUR WAX.  START BY MIXING A SMALL AMOUNT OF PAINT WITH THE WAX (RECOMMENDED RATIO IS 1 PART PAINT TO 5 PARTS WAX). ADD MORE PAINT UNTIL YOU REACH YOUR DESIRED TRANSPARENCY.  A DOLLOP OF ANGORA MIXED WITH CLEAR WAX CREATES A STUNNING WHITE WASH EFFECT.
