From the Dixie Belle Paint Company "How to Book"...
Dixie Belle Paint has superb adhesion qualities, which allows you to skip the sanding and priming. You can use a 220 sanding sponge to quickly buff, now your project is smooth as silk, no waxing required!
Painting with Dixie Belle Paint will be the easiest and most enjoyable painting you have ever done!
-Clean your piece.
-Paint in thin coats with damp paint brush.
-Distress if you like that look.
-Darker colors usually need only one coat.
-Lighter colors may need two coats.
-Most times, your bottom coat is dry by the time you are ready for the 2nd coat.
In addition to the beautiful paint colors, we stock many other Dixie Belle Paint products such as their White Lightening Cleaner, Clear Coats, Waxes and Gel Stains to name a few.
Our Shop Girl Debbie of Vintage Haven stocks these products and works at the Shop on Mondays from 1:30 until 5:00 and is happy to answer any questions you may have and can help you get started on your next DIY project!
Debbie stocks the Dixie Belle "How to Book" in her space as well as a color card to help inspire you. She also holds furniture painting classes throughout the year.
