Customer Questions & Answers

Can paint be thinned out with water/

Can paint be thinned out with water/
Asked by: Molly
Hi Molly, Yes, it can because it is a water-based paint. You can add a few drops of water at a time to thin, but be careful not to exceed 20% of the paint's volume, as it will lose some adhesion qualities after that threshold. -DecoArt Paint Guru

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Chalk Paint EVER Americana Decor is great. I've used several different colors of their chalk paints and they all turn out great every single time. I am redoing our current bedroom set to match our new bedspread for our new house and I think primitive is my favorite color so far! But besides the color looking great, I love this paint because it requires little to no prep work! It will cover absolutely anything. Often just one coat will do, however, just to be safe I usually do two. And it dries in no time! Once you have the first coat on you can get started on the second because it's already completely dry! Buy this product! You will not regret it! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Americana Chalk Paint Ok I must admit it was my first time using the Chalk paint. After reading reviews I was reluctant to try this brand, but it's easy to obtain & I jumped in. I started my first project on an old chair off my dads boat. It sits in a corner of my guest room w a chair cover over it the fabric was so yuck and dated, but good bones. If something went wrong I knew I could just throw the cover back over it& forget about it. I was pleasantly relieved to see how well the paint covered the fabric, low odor I did the project in my house w a drop cloth, sanded in garage though. It looks AmaZing!, so easy I can't wait to get my hands on the next piece. I highly recommend to any Pinterest Pinner, this is where I read how to do the painting & got my inspiration. I am just waiting for my stencil to come in the mail to complete the project. I don't know how the "other brands of paint " preform , but I was completely Happy w this line from Home Depot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. I used to cover old kitchen cabinets. No sanding or priming and Crema Wax has made them water resistant. A great way to extend the life of the cabinets until we are ready for a major renovation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT product! Great paint! Goes on smooth, with great coverage usually within 2 coats. LOVE it. Have used it on several pieces already and just love how good it looks on them. Waxed and one coat of poly and the pieces are ready to go. Very happy with this chalk paint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Paint worked well Paint seemd very similar to Annie Sloan chalk paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did what I wanted it to do. Primitive is a very nice taupe color that would work well with warm grays and your basic beiges. I have worked with chalk paint before and this was similar although it seemed a little thicker than other brands. I used this paint over the stain blocker/sealer from this same line. Which may have had an effect on how smoothly it went on. I thinned the paint with water in a container before using a good (Purdy) brush and a foam roller to apply it. I didn't want brush strokes to show and they didn't. The paint went on smooth, but it took 2 coats to get the opaque coverage I wanted. It was easy to use and easy clean up. A little went a long way, so I believe this is a good value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The color label is not the color in the jar. The "Primitive" paint looks more like off white. I... The color label is not the color in the jar. The "Primitive" paint looks more like off white. I put some of the paint on the lid touching the color label and it was not even close when it dried. I will be returning it. I will see if the paint department will color match the "primitive" color, because it sure seems like a nice paint color.
