Fresco gives you the perfect sea swept, weathered, worn, and rustic texturized look. Fresco is 100% Natural and contains no VOCs. Depending on your mix and application, you will get a different end result.
Our small Package will make 1 Pint of the Sea Swept or Crackled Heavy Texture look, or 5 Pints of Flat Matte Chalky Finish.
Sea Swept: Mix 1 part Fresco to 2 parts Fusion™ Mineral Paint with a whisk or a paint stir stick for approximately 30 seconds.
*Lumps and chunks are expected and desired to create a textured effect. For less texture, whisk to remove all lumps for the flat matte chalky finish.
Apply the mixture to your paint ready surface. Allow to set for 10-20 minutes then knock down any heavy lumps by passing your brush over them. Allow to fully dry, then continue with additional colors and layers of paint. Fresco is not required in additional layers of paint.
*Stippling adds texture.
Complete the look by wet sanding to expose your multiple layers of paint and texture! For best results use a 220 grit sanding sponge. For antiquing, use our Espresso Wax, or antiquing glaze to enhance all the details.
CRACKLED HEAVY TEXTURE
Mix 1 part Fresco to 2 parts Fusion Mineral Paint.
Apply a thick (2-3mm) layer of the mixture to your paint ready surface. Allow to set for 10-20 minutes. Knock down any heavy lumps by passing your brush over them. The heavier the texture the larger the cracks. Applying sunlight or heat will increase the crackle effect.
FLAT MATTE CHALKY FINISH
Mix 1 part Fresco to 8 parts Fusion Mineral Paint.
1 Small Bag will make 2.5 Quarts or 5 Pints of Flat Matte Chalky Finish.
Apply the mixture in various directions for a hand-painted look immediately upon application. If any lumps occur, brush them out. If using the included scoop, add 4 scoops per Pint for this look. Add more or less as desired.
