I am absolutely bursting with excitement because coming very soon down under is Frenchic Furniture Paint and we are going to be the first Australian stockist to carry this fantastic product. It has been a long time coming but we finally feel we have found a chalk and mineral paint that ticks all of the boxes.
So lets have a little look at Frenchic. This amazing range was borne in England and is the fastest growing chalk / mineral paint in the UK. The paint has some absolutely brilliant qualities (which I won’t go into detail now) but outstanding and paramount to us is that fact that it has NO VOC’s, solvents or toxins added. Frenchic Furniture Paint has been certified as being safe to use on children’s furniture and toys as per EN71:3 making it both environmentally friendly and family friendly (including safe around pets). Frenchic proudly display what is in their paint on the side of every can!!
As always I was super keen to work with the paint and get the feel for its application. I was very impressed. The paint is super thick and creamy but in saying that is easy to water down for a thinner application.
The coverage is excellent and their natural bristle brushes carry the paint beautifully..
Check out this little side table that I painted up using a lovely French grey called “Grey Pebble”
I painted this entire piece plus a small frame using one 100ml Sample pot!! It only took 2 coats and she was done … and don’t even get me started on the waxes!!
I finished this lil beauty with Frenchic all natural white wax for that classic limed finish.
So when is it coming you ask?…….. SOON!! Which means early in the new year. We have a date in mind but we are keeping that one under our belt for the time being.
As you can imagine I currently have a whole bunch of pieces lined up for a Frenchic makeover which I will share with you as well as some upcoming posts shedding more light on this amazing range. And I will definitely let you know when Frenchic lands in store!
Happy painting and safe holiday / travels 🙂
