How to Paint - Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint
Dixie Belle has 69 colors of chalk mineral paint.
It is waterbased. Start with a damp brush. It is self leveling and will provide a nice smooth finish. Lightly sand between coats for an even smoother texture. (use a 220 sanding sponge or sand paper.)
Dixie Belle Paint is very thick and a little goes a long way. The longer the lid stays off, the thicker it will get. If you'd like it thinner, no worries, just add a little water and stir. Add too much water? No worries, just leave lid off and it will thicken up. Whatever consistency you desire, Dixie Belle Paint will work for you!
Distress a little too much for your taste? That's okay! Just paint right over that area and start again!
Most pieces will take one to two coats for full coverage. Sometimes, after the first coat dries it will look blotchy. Don't freak out! After the second coat, it will be beautiful!
Sometimes you will see brushstrokes, don't worry, as the paint dries, they will disappear. Dixie Belle Paint is the best paint for self leveling.
Dry time: 15 minutes - Cure time: 21-30 days
