Guess what the theme of our booth will be?  

Ways to keep your paint fresh on your shelf! Like to have lots of Chalk Paint® colors on hand, but worried about spoiling or wasting paint? Here are important tips!
Use a syringe to syphon out paint and place it in a separate container for painting. This will prevent contamination from bacteria on a brush. It will help keep lid clean so it seals tight without a buildup of dried paint.
Never add tap water to your can of paint. Tap water contains bacteria that will cause mold to grow on a closed can of paint. If you add water to the can, make sure it is purified or distilled.
Use flip-lids to help keep you can sealed. These and syringes are sold at TLC Vintage Collection.
Our newest product is three sizes of Paint-Eze (all the same price). Part or an entire can of paint can fit into these plastic bottles. They have a silicone nipple that never blocks up with dried paint. We are converting to this use in our workshop we like them that well!

Buffing brushes – Oval shaped large and medium size beautiful mahogany shiny brushes with a hand strap and black bristles. Perfect for buffing up a shine!

TSP – Degreaser you need to use any time you undertake painting something that has been in a kitchen. Scrub well with TSP, then rinse well and dry – off you go to a successful paint job!

Gilding Waxes – Great highlighters in gold, silver, pewter, brass! A final finishing touch after you have waxed to add a little sparkle. Or, stencil with these great waxes or create a glaze! We’ll tell you how!
