How does Dixie Belle Paint work?
Dixie Belle Paint has superb adhesion qualities which allow you to skip the sanding and priming prep work required of other paints.
Using 150-220 grit sandpaper, sand the edges, high points and area where there would be normal wear. Dixie Belle Paint will simply fade away.
A large jar will cover a large size dresser and 2 nightstands, the small jar, a coffee and 2 end tables. Dixie Belle Paint is thick and adding small amount water as you paint, is recommended. Doing that will also make it last longer!
Do I need to prep the surface before painting?
Your piece should be free of dirt, dust and grime before painting. A regular cleaning using soap and water with a damp rag is typically sufficient. As with anything, if it's super grimy, a cleaning with some TSP will help.
How many coats of paint will I need?
If you're painting with a darker color, a single coat will usually do. If it's a lighter color, you will probably need two. Depending on the size of the piece you're working on, most times, by the time you're finished with the first coat, the place you started is already dry so you can just keep going!
Love the layered paint look?
Paint a base color and then another color over top. Dixie Belle paint dries super-fast so, by the time you’re finished painting the beginning should already be dry! Get your sandpaper, either 150 or 220, and start sanding away to let the base color show through. Sand a little more and you'll get to the original piece. Let your imagination run wild!
