One small package (75g) mixed with 1 pint of paint makes the Sea Swept or Crackled Heavy Texture Look.
This same small package (75g) turns 3 pints of Fusion Mineral Paint into a Fresco Lime paint or 5 pints of Fusion Mineral Paint into a Dead-Flat Matte Chalky Finish.
How to Use:
Mix Fresco into your paint, according to the above recipes for your desired look. Mixture will be lumpy, for less texture whisk until almost smooth.
Apply mixture to your paint ready surface. Allow to set for 10-20 minutes then knock down any heavy lumps by passing your brush over them.
Allow to fully dry, then continue with additional colors and layers of paint. Fresco is not required in additional layers of paint.
Complete the look by wet sanding to expose your multiple layers of paint and texture! For best results use a 220 grit sanding sponge. For antiquing, use our Espresso Wax, or Antiquing Glaze to enhance all the details.
