Return of the Painter
So I told you how we became so addicted to painting and how like most addictions it almost killed me. I guess you are wondering how we got from there to here?
The store we had started and had to let go became, through a series of events, ours again. As you know, everything commercial requires social media and the internet, and we began again networking with online forums and groups. One day I came across a posted picture that was so impressive I couldn't get it out of my mind. I eagerly showed it to my spouse and we realized it was an effect we couldn't reproduce with any of our existing products (even if we were to retry our homemade magic formulas!) I contacted the person who posted the picture (Linda Karslake of Linda Karslake Paint Studio) and asked her how she did it and she said she used only Frenchic Paint Products available in the UK where she lived. She went on to tell me that they were not only easier to use than everything else, but they are odorless and very safe. YAY! She also said they were only available in the UK. Not so yay. I did a little homework and discovered that Frenchic was the fastest-growing chalk and mineral paint in England's long history. Wow! We had to bring it here somehow.
Fast forward to today. It's here. Frenchic is here! Complete with our own website and this fantastic blog (go ahead and roll your eyes, it's ok, everyone else does). We have our own growing network of retailers we snobbishly call "stockists" in the finest Old World tradition. Be sure to check out our Find A Stockist section of the site. If there isn't a stockist near to you feel free to order a sample of Frenchic to try yourself. The coverage is amazing, the quality is far beyond any competing product, and it is completely safe to use. Frenchic uses food-grade pigments in all the paints and cosmetic-grade colors in Frensheen, the drop-dead gorgeous metallic powders you can mix with our waxes and Finishing Coat. This is starting to sound like a sales pitch, which we all hate, so I'll sign off for now wishing you "Happy Painting!"
