No, it’s not. Fusion™ is a 100% acrylic, water-based paint. The “mineral” in Fusion Mineral Paint™ refers to the pigments used which are harvested from the earth. Using natural rather than synthetic pigments allows for greater depth in colour and better durability to UV light and time. Once cured, a surface painted with Fusion™ is both water and stain proof. No primer or top coat required, making it more of a one-step kind of paint. Blogger Melanie of Lost & Found gives us an excellent breakdown about the differences between Fusion Mineral Paint™ and chalk-like paints here.
