Colorantic™ DIY Chalk Based Paint Sweet Truffle, a smooth creamy chalky finish that is non toxic, no led content, bases have no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and added pigmentations for colorants have very small amount of VOC, all colours have less than 60g/L. Our chalk-based paints follow rules and regulations from Heath Canada. Colorantic chalk-based paints are eco-friendly. In fact, instead of using conventional metal cans as many paint companies, we decided to poor our paints into plastic containers with white screwable lids to add longevity to our paints’ life. In addition to being eco-friendly, our chalk-based paints have a smooth and creamy texture and are water-chalk based made from raw Canadian ingredients. The team at Colorantic have developed our own unique chalk-based paint recipe to provide you with the best chalk-based paint possible on the market. It is so easy to paint furniture and home décor craft projects with Colorantic™ products! Even if you are starting your first project or are now an expert, we are sure that you will fall in love with our products!
All our chalk-based paints, beeswaxes, glazes, metallic paints that we have created dry in a short time of about 30 minutes when you apply them on wood furniture. This unique formula enables you to paint the second coat quickly, giving you more free time. Furthermore, Colorantic DIY Sweet Truffle chalk-based paint adheres to most surfaces such as wood, fabric, mat, metal, without much preparation. If your wood furniture or home decor craft surface is shinny, you will need to sand lightly and clean with a TSP liquid to help achieve a matte surface to help our paint to adhere. Do not forget to rinse with a damp cloth to clean your surface and before adding the first coat of our Colorantic chalk-based paint. Some shinny or oil-based surfaces might require primer as a first coat. This will help you avoid sanding a shinny surface. Kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors or furniture that you want immaculate white will provide you the best results if you add a first coat of primer before adding our chalk-based paints.
Colorantic™ offers you a wide array of products such as 32 chalk-based paint colours, including this colour Sweet Truffle, 5 metallic paints, 4 glitter, 4 glazes, and 5 wax colours. The company also suggests a variety of accessories such as paint brushes, cleaner & varnish remover, paint and hand soap and even nice and stylish knobs to finalize your upholstery and restored furniture projects.
This Colorantic Sweet Truffle chalk-based paint can be added with one of our oval or round paint brushes or our velvet foam rolls. Our paints feel like a creamy and smooth butter cream icing on a cake (although it is applied on furniture). It dries in about 30-60 minutes. However, before adding the final varnish/topcoat or wax with a round or oval paint brush, it is recommended to wait a longer time (2 to 24 hours). Sweet Truffle can be left as is or you could add a protection coat with Colorantic wax, varnish, or clear glaze. It will increase the longevity of your furniture. If your project has glass = add paint directly on the surface with a foam stick brush. If your project has a water-based varnish or paint = clean the surface with a TSP cleaner such as the TSP-Eco friendly Cleaner & Varnish remover from Colorantic. Let it acts 20-30 minutes, then rinse with a damp cloth and you can paint. If your furniture has a shinny oil-based varnish or paint, you have no choice to add a strong TSP (mostly are sold in hardware stores), then rinse and add an oil-based primer (mostly are sold in hardware stores). Then you are ready to apply Colorantic paint. This last step is mostly seen with bathroom, kitchen cabinets or older shinny and yellowish furniture. If you use a TSP, do not forget to use gloves and open windows. If your furniture project is on flat raw wood (ex. Pine), apply our Colorantic chalk-based paints directly on the wood.
