If you have a blog you will know how much work is involved in keeping up with it. Especially if you just do it as a hobby and not as an income- like me!! I guess when somebody is paying you to write a post it gives you a bit of a push??
Anyway- my last post has me explaining my move from one shop to another. I am so happy at my new location! It is great!
I have brought in a few new lines of paint that many are familiar with. If you remember I started out with Annie Sloan’s paint. I used that for a while but then decided to switch to a premium quality brand called Pure&Original from Holland. I also sell another chalk paint called Everlong–which just changed its name……to Sarah Jayne’s maybe? Anyway- just selling of my existing stock of that brand.
I also started selling Fusion Mineral paint from Canada! Yeah, Canada!! This is an acrylic paint that is manufactured by Homestead House from Toronto. IT is my new love!! I also sell Miss Mustard Seed milk paint which is also manufactured by Homestead House. I am sure everybody has seen her blog!
So I have three types of paint now- which is amazing because I don’t believe that one paint can do everything……For example- if you want authentic chippy furniture- Mustard Seed is the brand to use… If you want a super smooth finish then I will always recommend Fusion. If you want to add a decorative finish then go with the chalk paint…..this is just my general rule- others may have different opinions 🙂
So….let’s see. Here are a few photos. This is Mustard Seed.
This is Fusion.
I haven’t painted a lot with Mustard Seed- I did just finish a very large cabinet that I painted pink for my shop- I am very happy with it. I love the look and surprisingly enough there are quite a few techniques that can be done with milk paint.
There are also waxes, top coats and a hemp oil as well as metallic paints and waxes……I think I am forgetting something!!
Anyway…..so this keeps me busy!
