Collection: Original Artisan Range Chalk & Mineral Paint

Easy for beginners, choice of professionals, Frenchic Original Artisan Range is a traditional style, eco-friendly, chalk and mineral paint. Rich, creamy, and self-priming, the Original Artisan Range gives you superior coverage in a range of 16 gorgeous colors with minimal VOC content and virtually no odor. Traditionally artisan, seal with one of our buttery waxes, Finishing Coat, or Tuff Top Coat for durability. You can create almost endless decorative effects – let your imagination loose with texture and multiple color layers for an eclectic, rustic, or antique look, or go for a sleek, smooth finish. As with all Frenchic paints and finishes, it is UKCA and EN71-3 certified, meaning it is safe to use on children’s toys.

Coverage

  • A 750ml tin will provide a single coat of up to 86 sq. ft.  Full visual coverage may require more than 1 coat, depending on the desired effect.

Preparation

  • Ensure surfaces are in suitable condition for painting - clean, dry, free from wax, grease, and in sound condition. If previously painted, remove loose or flaking paint.
  • Surface preparation required in addition to the above – clean with Frenchic Sugar Soap, rinse and dry. Hand-sand sufficiently to abrade the surface. Wipe off any dust, paint away! For a great demonstration, see our video from Frenchic TV.
  • Take care on opening the tin lid – a Frenchic tin opener is recommended.
  • Stir thoroughly with a wide implement, such as a Paint Paddle, prior to each use.

Application, drying and sealing

Clean up and storage

  • Reseal tin after use. Clean up any spills immediately with water. Wash brushes in warm, soapy water.
  • Do not store where the tin could be subjected to dampness, frost, freezing or high temperatures.

Advice for choosing colors

We make every effort to match our online color swatches to the paint, however, we cannot guarantee an exact color replication as devices can display differently due to screen types and device settings. In addition, colors can appear different once in your home due to lighting and surroundings and can present differently depending on surface texture and porosity. There is no substitute for visiting a Stockist (retailer) to see the colors yourself and or to try out the paint by purchasing a smaller 250ml ‘Dinky’ tin.
