Mermaid – Colorantic Chalk Based Paint for DIY Furniture & Craft Painting Projects
Colorantic™ DIY Chalk Based Paint Mermaid a creamy chalky finish is non-toxic. It comes with no lead content. And the bases have no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Furthermore, the added pigmentations for colorants have small amounts of VOC, less than 60g/L.
We make sure that our chalk-based paints abide by rules and regulations from Health Canada.
Colorantic chalk-based paints are eco-friendly. In fact, instead of using conventional metal cans as many paint companies do, we decided to pour our products into plastic containers with white screwable lids to add longevity to our paints’ life. In addition to being eco-friendly, our chalk-based colors have a smooth and creamy texture.
Colorantic’s team has developed our own unique chalk-based paint recipe to provide you with the best chalk-based paint possible on the market.
It is easy to paint furniture and home decor craft projects with Colorantic™’s products! Even if you are starting your first project or are now an expert, we are sure that you will fall in love with our products!
All our chalk-based paints, beeswaxes, glazes, and metallic paints dry in a short period of about 30 minutes when you apply them to wood furniture. This unique formula enables you to paint the second coat quickly, allowing you more free time to do your regular chores and duties. Furthermore, Colorantic DIY Mermaid chalk-based paint adheres to most surfaces such as wood, fabric, mat metal, without any preparations.
Prepping furniture with shiny surface
If your wood furniture or home decor craft surface is shiny, you will need to sand lightly and clean with a TSP liquid or powder-mix container to help achieve a matte texture to help our paint to adhere. Don’t forget to rinse with a damp cloth to clean your surface before adding our Colorantic chalk-based paint coat.
Some shinny or oil-based surfaces might require a primer as a first coat. It will help you avoid sanding a shiny surface. Kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors or furniture that you want immaculate white will provide you the best results if you apply a coat of primer before adding our chalk-based paints.
Other products offered
Colorantic™ offers a wide variety of products that includes:
The company also suggests a variety of accessories such as paintbrushes, cleaner & varnish remover, paint, hand soap, and even stylish knobs to finalize your upholstery and restored furniture projects.
You can use one of our oval or round paintbrushes or velvet foam rolls to apply Mermaid. However, before adding the final varnish/topcoat or wax with a round or oval paintbrush, it is recommended to wait longer (2 to 24 hours). Mermaid can be left as it is.
Or you could add a protective coat with Colorantic’s wax, varnish, or clear glaze. It will increase the longevity of your furniture. If your project has glass = add paint directly on the surface with a foam stick brush.
Water-based paint surface
If your project has a water-based varnish or paint = clean the surface with a TSP cleaner such as the TSP-Eco friendly Cleaner & Varnish remover from Colorantic. Let it act 20-30 minutes, then rinse with a damp cloth, and you can paint.
Shiny oil-based surface
If your furniture has a shiny oil-based varnish or paint, you have no choice to add a strong TSP, then rinse and add an oil-based primer. Then you are ready to apply Colorantic’s paint.
flat raw wood surface
If your furniture project is on flat raw wood (ex. Pine), apply our Colorantic chalk-based paints directly to the wood.
