I get lots of questions about How to use Fusion Mineral Paint from Prep to Finish. So I thought that I would share with you the best way I have found after using this yummy paint for many years. The most important thing that I have found is that prepping your piece is so important to ensure that your piece lasts. If you’re new to painting furniture, you put a lot of time into each piece and really want to enjoy it. So starting with a clean fresh canvas is always a must.

Step 1 – Clean Your Piece

If you happen to come along to one of my BYO Piece Fusion Mineral Paint Workshops  I always get my clients to thoroughly clean down their pieces with TSP. This ensures that your piece is free from dirt and grime and creates a nice clean canvas ready for you to create your magic.

Step 2 – Remove any High Gloss Paint or Varnish

Using your 220 grit sandpaper and sander remove any gloss or paint. This opens up the pores of the wood and gives allows the paint to adhere. You can see further details of this farmhouse sideboard I made over for a client recently by clicking on the link.

Step 4 – Seal with B.I.N Sealer and Primer

 

If the piece that you’re working on is redwood or has any knots in it always seal with B.I.N Sealer and Primer. This prevents the dreaded bleed through.

Step 5 – Always check to make sure your piece isn’t sealed with wax.

If your painting over a surface that has been sealed with wax remove with mineral spirits and then lightly sand. The way to tell if it has been sealed with wax is to scratch it with your fingernail and see if there is any build up.

Step 6 – Apply Beeswax Stick if Distressing and Start Painting

Grab your beeswax stick and apply to parts of your piece where you don’t want the paint to adhere to.  Choose your favourite Fusion Colour and start painting.

Step 7 – Start Distressing!

Using your 120 grit sandpaper and sander start distressing. Once you’re happy with the desired look either wax or use hemp oil to seal in all your hard work. If your piece is a high use piece like a dining room table or kitchen cupboards seal with Tough Coat instead of the wax or hemp oil. This just adds an extra layer of protection for wear and tear. Let cure overnight before placing your piece in its new home!
