It features highly concentrated pigments and boasts an opaque coverage with only one coat. Metallic Lustre adheres to most absorbent surfaces, as well as metal. Because it's a paste, it allows for more control during application than liquid paint. 	 New Colors Finding a unique piece at a garage sale or flea market can be a fun and rewarding experience. However, you never really know what might be hidden on the surface of your new piece. There are many different stains and oils that may have been applied or naturally accumulated on the surface over the years (such as kitchen grease on cabinets or tables). In addition, some surfaces may have finishes that have worn away, or contain deep scratches, which may expose old stains or natural tannins found in many types of wood. These unforeseen surface conditions can interfere with the performance and appearance of Americana® Decor™ Chalky Finish paint, waxes and varnishes.  To prevent natural tannins, scratches, stains, oils, and other unknowns from penetrating and bleeding through your newly painted surface, we recommend applying a base coat of Americana® Decor™ Stain Blocker prior to painting. Create aged, crackled finishes on a variety of home decor surfaces. Apply even coat over dry basecoat of Americana® Decor™ Chalky Finish paint. Allow to dry. Apply thin coat of contrasting color on top of dried medium. Crackling will occur to the top layer of paint while drying, exposing the basecoat color. The medium allows for full control of crackle results based on thickness of application and application techniques. Application techniques and direction of brush strokes will achieve various crackling effects. Available in 8 oz.  TIP: The heavier the coat, the larger the cracks. The thinner the coat, the smaller the cracks. Americana® Decor™ Chalky Finish paint is an ultra-matte chalk paint that requires no priming or sanding before using. The color palette includes 29 intermixable colors carefully selected with home decor trends in mind. Whether your project is a small, decorative flea market frame or a large buffet found at an estate sale, Chalky Finish Customize your look  Mixing Recipes Our water-based waxes are available in three shades, and have a creamy consistency unlike other solid waxes on the market. Due to the porous nature of Americana® Decor™ Chalky Finish paints, our Crème Waxes literally fuse with the paint to provide a super strong layer of protection against daily use. Waxes offer a greater range of finishing options than varnishes, but be sure to use an Americana® Decor™ varnish for outdoor pieces.      Easily applied with a brush or a soft, clean cloth     Soap & water clean-up     Can be buffed to a high-gloss sheen     Dark waxes must be used over clear wax, to avoid staining the paint.  TIP: To achieve a washed look, Clear Crème Wax can be tinted with a lighter color before application. Americana® Decor™ Image Transfer medium is the ideal medium for use with your own laser copies. Add old-world, European, shabby chic, and vintage imagery to furniture and home decor accents.      Permanent, water-based formula     Dries clear     Low odor     Does not change sheen of paint     Cleans easily with soap & water  TIP: For added durability, also apply Image Transfer Medium as a topcoat.  TIP: To use on fabric, pre-wash first. If working with layers of fabric, insert a piece of cardboard covered with wax paper between the layers to prevent sticking. Allow to dry 72 hours before hand-washing. Air dry. Do not dry clean or iron. For a machine washable finish, topcoat with Americana Fabric Decou-Page and let dry for 72 hours prior to machine washing. R&F’s Pigment Sticks® are recognized as the premier oil-based painting stick, but their use goes far beyond painting alone.

Some of the world’s most legendary Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners have created with Blackwing pencils. The list of known users includes John Steinbeck, Stephen Sondheim, Leonard Bernstein and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and countless other Looney Tunes characters. Its roots go back to the 1930’s when it was first introduced by Eberhard Faber. In 1998, after several corporate acquisitions, it was discontinued, but not forgotten. In fact, fans began paying as much as $40 on eBay for a single Blackwing pencil. Artists from across the world soon noticed that Palomino’s range of premium pencils provided a comparable performance to the Blackwing and asked them to consider reviving the iconic brand. Palomino founder and CEO Charles Berolzheimer, whose family’s roots in the pencil industry date back to the mid 19th century, used his unique supply relationships to re-introduce the Blackwing pencil, both in its original form (the “602”) for devotees, writers and everyday users, as well as a modified version with a slightly softer lead for artists. And despite the 602 model being shipped with a black eraser, traditionalists were happy to learn that pink and other nontraditional colored replacement erasers are now available for those who like to “hack” their Blackwing. Claimed by many to be the best writing utensil in the world, Blackwing pencils are famous for the quality of graphite, iconic shape, replaceable eraser, and the men and women whose works they’ve inspired throughout the years. Building upon the popularity of Blackwing pencils, Palomino recently released a unique line of luxury notebooks, sketchbooks and folios that help inspire your ideas from pencil to paper, from cultivation to culmination.   Journals include a pencil and come blank or dot gridded and available  and in stock now at both locations.
