Heirloom Traditions is one of the fastest growing chalk-type paint lines in the country, and is 100% made in America. The line offers more than 50 exciting, fashionable colors of chalk-free chalk-type paint that are suitable for wood, metals, ceramics and leather, etc. The paints are water-based (allowing easy clean up with soap and water) with low V.O.C.s and are suitable for indoor use.
Instead of chalk, these paints use clay. And unlike most paints on the market that are made from a “base” and then later tinted with pigments (typically about 30% pigmented), Heirloom Traditions paints are made with the pigments ground in as each color batch is manufactured (allowing 70% pigmentation and richer colors).
How to Use: Pour desired amount in a paper bowl. Have a separate bowl of water. Dip brush in water and then into the paint, and then apply to your piece in small sections. (Some users then stipple the brush on the area just painted to spread the pigments of the paint color). Let dry and then apply a second layer of paint with just paint (no water) in smooth strokes in one direction.
