This is a question that I get asked often by my clients. What is Fusion Mineral Paint and can’t I just use wall paint instead to refinish my furniture? You can, however using Fusion makes the process much faster and no heavy duty sanding or priming is needed. Fusion is very versatile, high quality product that leaves a beautiful finish.

Fusion has great adhesion on wood but when painting veneer, glass or metal surfaces use Fusion’s Ultra Grip first. Ultra Grip is similar to a primer to help your paint adhere but dries clear, perfect if you are looking to distress you furniture.

Fusion goes on quite smooth when using a good quality brush and can be almost self-leveling if applied properly. One of the great qualities of Fusion that gets my clients excited is that it has a built in top-coat and requires NO waxing or top coat! That’s right! Fusion typically requires two coats of paint with a recommended drying time of up to 12 hours (depended upon the humidity) but once you have applied you final coat your done. You now have upcycled a tired piece of furniture into a beautiful work of art! Click here to find out what is upcycling and why you should do it. Fusion is quite durable but if you are looking for more durability for higher traffic areas such as dinning room tables, chairs or kitchen cabinets try Fusion’s Tough Coat wipe on matte poly.
