WHAT IS COTTAGE PAINT? Cottage Paint is a clay-based paint that drys to a silky matte finish and remains porous and easy to sand or wet distress when dry. We didn't invent this paint, it's been around since the frescos in the Sistine Chapel! We did, however bring it up to modern environmental standards by removing almost all of the VOCs in both the bases and the pigments.rted.

HOW MANY COLORS ARE AVAILABLE? There are 24 base colors, but when you account for mixing and playing with variations of hues- you can think of it as tons! Cottage Paint colours can be mixed to create new colours. You can also tint with a LITTLE Mixol universal pigment…it's highly concentrated and it won’t affect the chemistry of Cottage Paint.

WHAT DO I PROTECT COTTAGE PAINT WITH? Seal Cottage Paint’s with Clear Flat Wax most of the time. You can also use Antique Wax for a more antiqued look. AND ALL COATS ARE APPLIED LIGHTLY- wiping the excess with a lint free cloth as you go. For a really tough finish, you can use Faux Like a Pro's Dead Flat Varnish or Satin Varnish.
