Hello friends !!!! Anita here!!

Do let us know how good or bad the year has been for you. And now to some crafty chit chat !!!

FolkArt Painted Finishes is a Texture finish paint that gives a natural organic look to a project. These come in four colours-Concrete, Moss, Rust and Barnwood . Crafters Corner has Rust and Moss in both light and dark shade.
It is applied with a DAB-ON technique that is dabbing method and is non-toxic in formula.
You need not apply Mod-Podge to seal the project when painted with Painted finishes as it is a sealer also. I can be used on wood, plastic, ceramic, metal, concrete and glass.
I usually takes 4 hours to dry.
Surface preparation depends on the type of surface you've chosen.

  • Wood –  Because FolkArt Painted Finishes Moss is a thick textural paint, there is no need for additional prep whether working on finished or unfinished wood, even if the surface is very rough.
  • Terra Cotta – No prep is necessary when decorating terra cotta.
  • Plastic – Wash plastic surfaces in warm, soapy water to remove any existing grease film. Allow to thoroughly dry.
  • Papier Mache – No prep is necessary when decorating papier mache surfaces.
  • Metal – Wash all new metal surfaces in warm, soapy water; allow to thoroughly dry. Moisten a paper towel or soft cloth with distilled white vinegar and wipe over surface; allow to dry.
  • Cement, Masonry and Garden Statuary – Apply a coat of white vinegar (to neutralize lime), allow to dry, rinse, and then allow to dry thoroughly.
All  Painted Finishes paints can be used outdoors.

What type of brushes should be used for painting with Painted Finishes?

You must use Stiff bristle brushes to paint as these are heavy paints. The brushes can be easily cleaned with warm water and soap.

I have used these paints to create a wall decor piece with some textured effect using the Painted Finish Moss and Rust.

Do follow the video where I show you how to make this.

  7. Use a skinny razor blade just like used by Wallpapering Wanganui to slip down the affected areas that ought to releases the window, this will even be used if the window is dry and you have got placed on too thick a coat on one facet of the window. Do not use a blade once it's wet as you'll accidentally push a number of the wet paint behind into unreached components.
