With the amount of painting we do at the store in our workshops, for customers and for our own use, we wanted a paint that was durable, Canadian-made and easy to apply. Fusion Mineral Paint is the perfect paint for us- it provides furniture painters with an environmentally conscious formulation, low VOC’s, superior durability and an easy one-step application, taking projects from foundation to finish.
Fusion Mineral Paint is a 100% acrylic latex paint that delivers a matte finish. We love the versatility of this paint- we are always trying new ideas, colours and techniques. Fusion Mineral Paint and its products make it easy for us to achieve different looks, from clean and modern to shabby chic!
The best way to find out more about Fusion Mineral Paint is to visit us in store, we are always happy to give you our recommendations on colours and the tools you will need to turn your creative vision for your furniture into a reality. However, if you would like to start a project but don’t really know where to begin, register for a workshop so we can walk you through all the necessary steps to take your piece from drab to fab!
Application: Carefully follow the instructions on Fusion Mineral Paint. This paint is easy to apply and typically takes 2-3 coats depending on the colour (each Pint covers approximately 75 square feet). We recommend using a quality paintbrush to achieve a smooth finish and reduce the appearance of brush strokes.
Durability: Once Fusion has cured, it yields a highly durable and a washable finish, with no need for a top coat. If you choose, you can of course achieve a beautiful lustre by adding a wax on top. Fusion is dry to the touch after 2 hours and can accept a re-coat after 4 hours. Cure time with all acrylic paints is 21 days, however, painted surfaces can be used gently after 24 to 48 hours of drying time.
Distressing: You can absolutely achieve a distressed look with Fusion Mineral Paint. We recommend distressing soon after the paint has dried and sealing off the rustic piece with beeswax.

Primers & Finishes
Fusion Mineral Paint is an all-in-one paint that takes your projects from foundation to finish. However, these projects can give your project a fresh sheen and extra protection. If your piece has a high-sheen base, we recommend using Ultra Grip before painting. If you distress your piece, we always love to add a beeswax finish to seal the paint and add a little luster!
