The secret to a beautiful finish is to apply Fusion Mineral Paint™ to a clean and sound surface. The Fusion™ formula adheres very well to clean water-based paints and even oil bases, without the use of primer. Clean your piece with our TSP Alternative to remove grease and dirt, and if there is a gloss, give it a light scuff sand. We recommend using Fusion Ultra Grip™ on very high-gloss finishes, detailed areas, or slick surfaces like Thermafoil that can not be scuff sanded very easily.
SELECTING YOUR TOOLS
Your tools for applying Fusion™ are just as important as your technique. Try one of our Staalmeester brushes® for a flawless finish. We also offer microfibre rollers as an alternative to brushes.
Less is more with Fusion™! The best way to avoid brush marks is to use only a small amount of paint on your applicator and apply with light pressure. If you can see paint lines/dimple marks, there is too much paint being used on your brush/roller. Remember, it’s easier to add more paint than it is to remove it.
Fusion™ is dry to the touch after 30 minutes and ready to re-coat within 1-2 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. Longer dry and cure times are required for painting done in high humidity and cooler temperatures, or in cases where multiple coats of paint were applied. Be gentle the first couple of days after painting to ensure that perfect finish.
BUILT-IN TOP COAT
Don’t worry about sealing your piece – Fusion™ needs no additional top coat, as it is very durable. After the piece is cured, wash away spills using a soft cloth with water and a mild soap.
SPECIALTY FINISHES & FAUX EFFECTS
If you require more protection there are several top coat options. On a light colour, you’ll love our non-yellowing clear matte or gloss Tough Coat™. If you’re using a dark colour and wish to increase the lustre and durability in one step, apply our Stain & Finishing Oil in Natural.
Looking to enhance sheen, add a lovely pearl lustre, or perhaps a shimmering metallic glow? Try one of our clear, coloured, or metallic waxes. For a rustic weathered charm, try our Ageing Wax or Antique Glaze.
