Fusion Mineral Paint Colours and Collections

What is Fusion Mineral Paint?

Created by the Canadian company Homestead House Paint Company, their milk paints were initially produced to complete furniture refurbishments. 

These colours became so popular that Homestead began producing pre-mixed products that DIYers could use at home. This led to the development of their massive range of Fusion Mineral Paint colours.

Creator and President of Homestead House Jennylyn Pringle and her team have worked tirelessly to produce colours that are their own individual formulas, rather than taking an existing paint and pigmenting it. The production process is done by hand in preference of machines.

These paints are made using the highest acrylic resin available which means:

  • It won’t crack
  • It won’t embrittle over time
  • It won’t go yellow

Fusion Mineral Paints are for everyone, whether a novice or professional painter.

  1. Dear Sam, I am so looking forward to using the fusion paint with your expertise tips. I have a guest ion about my piece. It is a brand new vanity that I bought on line which is already green. Like I said “brand new”. To use my midnight blue paint, must I sand, strip it or anything else before I paint? I’m thanking you in advance for your advice. Elaine

    1. Hi there Elaine, So sorry for my very late reply!!! I have been in hospital over Christmas and the New Year and just getting through my emails etc.

      Are you planning to distress your piece?

      If so yes you may want to strip back so that you don’t have any of the green coming through.

      But if your planning on not distressing just make sure your surface is clean and give a light scuff up with some 120 grit sandpaper to open up the pores and give the paint something to adhere to and paint away.

      If the paint surface has a glossy finish I would scuff up and then also give a coat of Fusion Ultra Grip as this gives you a nice canvas for the paint to adhere to and prevent from peeling.

      Hope that makes sense! Please feel free to ask away if you have any more questions 🙂

  2. I bought a cheap dresser and am going to paint it with the rose gold. The previous owner sanded it and there are some kid of fuzzy spots where they got down to the particle board. Should I prime before painting or will the paint level put and hide that? Also, do I need to topcoat or is the mineral paint pretty durable?

    1. Hi there Lisa, Thank you so much for your questions!! Because there is a difference in the surface that you would be painting on I would highly recommend using a wood filler to pop on the fuzzy bits and then lightly sand back to get a nice smooth level surface all ready for you to paint on. If your dresser is going to be used a lot yes for sure go ahead and give it a coat of top coat for extra durability. But there is already a built-in top coat in Fusion so if it’s not going to be a highly used piece then you should be right with the paint colour that you chose. Also if you decided to distress or anything like that because you have opened up the pores of the paint again you will need to seal it again with either wax or the topcoat. Hope you have fun painting your dresser and would love to see your finished piece!
