Fresco gives you the perfect sea swept, weathered, worn and rustic texturized look. Fresco is 100% Natural and contains no VOC’s. Depending on your mix and application, you will get a different end result.
Our small Package will make 1 Pint of the Sea Swept or Crackled Heavy Texture look, or 5 Pints of Flat Matte Chalky Finish. Enough to paint the huge 7 foot wardrobe you see here!
Sea Swept: Mix 1 part Fresco to 2 parts Fusion™ Mineral Paint with a whisk or a paint stir stick for approximately 30 seconds.
*Lumps and chunks are expected and desired to create the textured effect. For less texture, whisk to remove all lump for the flat matte chalky finish.
Apply mixture to your paint ready surface. Allow to set for 10-20 minutes then knock down any heavy lumps by passing your brush over them. Allow to fully dry, then continue with additional colours and layers of paint. Fresco is not required in additional layers of paint.
*Stippling adds texture.
Complete the look by wet sanding to expose your multiple layers of paint and texture! For best results use a 220 grit sanding sponge. For antiquing, use our Espresso Wax, or Antiquing Glaze to enhance all the details.
