Yes, you can just apply the paint without distressing it (i.e. sanding or waxing the paint). However, it does deliver a flat matte finish. It can be buffed when dry with a soft cotton cloth (like a Tshirt) to provide a soft satin sheen, or you can apply a water-based varnish to achieve the sheen you're looking for. -DecoArt Paint Guru
The Chalky Finish will dry hard on fabric. It will adhere to fabric just fine, but won't dry soft. Meant for decorative purposes only. -DecoArt Paint Guru
Carbon is actually "Black". Our white chalky paint is called "Everlasting". These acrylics are water based and intermixable with other water based acrylics.
The paint alone is not waterproof. You would need to seal with one of our Americana Decor Varnishes.
I used synthetic brush and it came out great.
An 8 ounce jar covers approximately 50 square feet on sealed surfaces. It will depend on the condition of the surface you are painting and how dark the wood is, but most colors cover in one coat.
Yes, our Chalky Finish will adhere to glass, but for decorative purposes only. You cannot drink out of it, nor can it be washed once paint is applied. -DecoArt Paint Guru
Yes, our Chalky Finish is very easy to sand down to deliver that distressed or vintage look your desiring. Our recommendation is that you let the darker overcoat dry completely - at least 1-2 hrs - before sanding. Use a light grit sand paper. -DecoArt Paint Guru
Typically you don't need to prep a surface prior to the Crackle Medium, but we don't know how the crackle will react with the existing gold finish (is the gold a solvent based, oil-based, water-based paint, etc). The crackle was meant to be applied over an existing Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint - it's not been tested with other manufacturer's product. It should work, but we guarantee the results based on the existing gold finish. -DecoArt Paint Guru
If you pull up Americana Decor 8oz Promise Chalky Finish, you will see a swatch card to the left. We have two shades of Pink in our Chalky Finish line - ADC05 Innocent, which is a brighter pink and ADC22 Promise, which is a softer pink. -DecoArt Paint Guru
