Fusion Mineral Paint is a Decorative finishing paint formulated with a built in topcoat providing furniture painters and decorative artists a best-in-class, easy to apply and durable, 100% acrylic paint.
Fusion Mineral Paint has a unique environmentally friendly formulation, is non-toxic, lead, ammonia and formaldehyde free, virtually odorless and with very low VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).
Application: Follow our directions carefully and Fusion can be applied to most previously painted or coated surfaces without priming or significant prep work.
No top coat?: Fusion is formulated with a built in top coat, the 100% acrylic resin. You do not need to use a top coat for water permanency!
Tip: On a microscopic level, flat or matte finishes have tiny ridges and valleys when the paint dries. Therefore, fingerprints and marking can occur. The marks can easily be removed using a damp cloth, however, if you are concerned about dust marks, apply a coat of FUSION Beeswax Finish or FUSION Tough Coat.
Coverage: Excellent coverage! Our Fusion paint offers incredible coverage of 75 sq ft per Pint(500ml). In most cases one coat is all you need. Our coverage is outstanding!
Durability: Once Fusion has cured, it yields a highly durable and a washable finish. If you choose, you can of course achieve a beautiful lustre by adding a Beeswax Finish on top, or the Tough Coat. Fusion is dry to the touch after 2 hours and can accept a recoat 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.
Sheen: Fusion is offered in a gorgeous matte finish. This means an almost zero reflectance value that allows you to achieve a beautiful smooth finish.
Distress: Absolutely! This paint is extremely easy to work with, though we recommend distressing soon after the paint has dried. It is very durable, so achieving the same result is tad more work after it has cured! It is recommended to apply a top coat when you distress because you will break open the surface and a top coat will be necessary to prevent water damage and continued distressing through extensive wear and tear.
