Last week I shared with you how I figured out to cut plexiglass myself as I explained it was to be used to line the shelves of an antique shoe rack for the Milk Paint by Fusion display in my Frame and Frills studio.
Let me explain what is going on in the Frame and Frills studio!
The ‘studio’ is my business Frame and Frills, and is basically located in the lower level of our house, on the Park Avenue entrance. I also have the entire shop available online, so I can ship to anyone in the lower 48 of USA. (HERE is the online shop)
A few weeks ago my first shipment of Fusion Mineral Paints arrived in the studio.
I have been giddy with this paint and am so excited to stock it in the studio!
So ‘Why Fusion?’
There are a couple of reasons this is such an exciting avenue for me, and well, for you too!
First, I love to encourage people to DIY. I truly believe that when one accomplishes something with their own hands, like painting a piece of furniture, a healing takes place. The main goal of Frame and Frills and the studio is to help people learn how to paint furniture pieces and have the confidence, right tools and great products to accomplish that.
That brings me to Fusion Mineral Paint! This product is truly something I can embrace!
Fusion Mineral Paint is manufactured with the highest integrity to create an environmentally friendly and health conscious product, but the great thing is that quality hasn’t been compromised in doing so.
In fact, the quality and durability of Fusion Mineral Paint is amazing!! You can use Fusion Mineral Paint for interior and exterior applications. It is so durable that it’s recommended for furniture, doors, cabinets, and more. It has amazing coverage. This truly is a professional paint for the everyday DIY-er!
This paint also has a built-in topcoat, so no extra layer is required for most painting projects.
Though no top coat is needed, accenting with glazes, waxes etc. is a fun treatment to add depth to your project which I’ll delve into in the workshops.
Fusion Mineral Paint is made with a pure 100% acrylic base, and highest quality finely ground minerals. It is also water clean up.
At Frame and Frills, not only do I stock every color available in Fusion Mineral Paint, along with the Metallic Paints, Milk Paint by Fusion, and all the prep supplies to ensure your project is successful. I have many different waxes and finishes, including all natural food safe beeswax hemp oil and outdoor safe tung oil, perfect for milk paint finishes.
This last week I’ve been busy painting up swatches, (and enjoying every minute). Fusion Mineral Paint is virtually odorless and such a joy to work with!
There are over 50 pre-mixed paint colors, and an infinite amount of colors to be created by mixing colors together, (there are even recipes available) to create your own custom color.
The metallics are stunning!
Fusion Mineral Paint is available in pints and tester sizes, and there’s a reason for that!
With Fusion you get great coverage. This chart gives you an idea of the amount of paint you’d actually need for a project. Why buy a bunch of extra paint that you don’t need?
Frame and Frills has excellent quality paint brushes and rollers, and now Mint Decoupage Papers are in stock in the studio to really kick your project up a notch!
I’m getting ready to work on a decoupage project and will share it with you soon! The papers are specifically designed to finish your piece like a piece of art… absolutely stunning!!
Workshops, where a small group will gather in the studio, is an exciting avenue of my DIY coaching plan.
Coming up will be a workshop featuring Fusion Mineral Paint techniques, decoupage and waxes. You’ll be able to complete a project and take it home with you at the end of the workshop time. I’ll be posting an update on the upcoming workshops on the Frame and Frills site very, very soon.
Can you tell that I’m excited about all this? I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to encourage others to DIY, and this is a fantastic avenue for that.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please feel free to follow and share this blog with your friends, as well as on MeWe, Facebook, Pinterest, Flipboard, Bloglovin, YouTube and Instagram!
