Americana Décor Chalky Finish Paints are specially formulated to provide excellent adhesion to wood, metal, laminate, glass, terra cotta, ceramics, and more. There’s no need to prep the surface with time-consuming stripping or sanding…you just clean it and go!

  • Minimum odor from both the paint and wax products due to low VOCs (volatile organic compounds
  • Water-based for easy clean-up
  • One-coat coverage with most colors and on most surfaces
  • Intermixable colors
  • No priming or prep needed (Unless the surface has an old finish that may bleed when painted; then Stain Blocker should be used before painting.)
  • Very matte finish with slight texture
  • Sandable
  • Dries quickly to the touch, full curing after 7 days
  • Durable due to the unique cross-linking feature of the paint resin system -- best in class
  • Can be brushed, rolled, or sponged
