Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paint
I am in no way an expert on paint, but as soon as I tried Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paint, I fell in love. The coverage is amazing, its eco friendly and the colors to choose from never disappoint!
I have been focusing on paper crafts a lot lately, they are just so much fun that I get a bit carried away. So I thought I’d expand a little bit on the painting I’m so fond of.
I use all recycled pallet wood for my signs and the few little home decor pieces I make. (like the mason jar project.) I’ve tried a lot of paint brands but Wise Owl is by far my favorite.
For the signs, I will usually stick to my favorite brand of paint but sometimes I stray. I have a lot of miscellaneous paint lying around from past projects so I’ll use it from time to time if I don’t have a color on hand from Wise Owl.
Now for the furniture pieces I paint, I always stick with Wise Owl and let me tell you why. Here are 7 reasons why I think Wise Owl Paint is the best chalk type paint.
1. It’s eco-friendly
It is free of harsh chemicals and solvents and has zero VOC’s. (volatile organic compounds found in many household products, that are generally harmful to your health.)
It is a mineral/clay based paint so it’s surface coverage is amazing! but more on that later! And the waxes are solvent free and made from local beeswax, how cool is that?!
2. No Prep
The number one reason that I love any chalk type paint is the no prep thing. While I think saying no prep is a bit misleading, it is true in the sense that you only have to make sure the piece you’re painting is clean. You don’t have to sand it down to bare wood. But you definitely want to make sure the surface is clean from any dirt or grime.
3. You really can’t mess it up!
It’s true. You can’t mess it up! If you don’t like it just wipe it off or sand it off. (before you seal it you should make that decision, I feel like this is obvious but should point it out for anyone who has never used chalk type paint before) Wise Owl is self leveling so say goodbye to brush strokes!
4. The colors
Have you seen this color chart?! Just look at all those beautiful colors!
I don’t think I need to say anything more about the amazing color choices. They blend so well too! Easy to mix to make your own custom colors.
5. Easy to distress
If you want that old worn look of distress or farmhouse, it’s super easy to achieve with Wise Owl paint. You can use sand paper or the wet distressing method. (more on that in another post, promise! maybe even a tutorial or two)
6. Can be used on any surface
This is undeniably true. I have used it on wood, plastic, glass, ceramic and even canvas. And I’ve gotten great results with every single one.
7. The matte varnish
The Wise Owl Matte Varnish is my go to for all my top coating needs. The durability of it is top-notch! No brush marks, no yucky smell and it doesn’t yellow!!! Just great results all around! A satin finish is available as well if you like a little bit of shine to the piece you are painting.
