I was so excited to try Maison Blanche paint that when the UPS man drove up I ran out and grabbed the box of paint and ran to the china cabinet and I opened the can and just started painting my china cabinet. I used Silver Mink and I'm in love. The paint went on so smoothly. I love the color white with a zing. I waited so long to paint this and I think it came out so well. Totally shabby chic.
La Craie Paint
The word La Craie is French for “the chalk.” Our exclusive formula contains calicium carbonade allowing adhesion to almost any surface. La Craie was designed with you, the creative and conscious consumer, in mind.
La Craie dries to a soft, velvety finish and is extremely low in organic volatile compounds, making it a green and eco-friendly alternative to oil based paints so often used on furniture. This water based paint has little to no odor; you can create your masterpiece just about anywhere without fear of reprisal from your delicate senses.
La Craie has been carefully refined and perfected to the last drop. It has been specially formulated for painting furniture, cabinetry, and trim. Silky and smooth, the paint can be applied using a variety of techniques in addition to ‘straight from the can.’ It can also be used to top off any existing furniture finish, without the need for stripping, sanding, or priming. La Craie will adhere to most surfaces. Add a bit of water and try it as a color wash. If you prefer your paint a bit thicker, simply leave the lid off for awhile. Use one color or layer several. Finish and protect with La Cire wax.
