Pressed Fern - Fusion Mineral Paint
Pressed Fern is a beautiful dark green, with a vibrant intensity mixed with dark moodiness. This new luscious colour from Fusion, is a deep, rich green that’s full of life and vitality and is the perfect base note to ground a colour scheme.
Fusion™ Mineral Paint is a revolution in furniture painting. Easy to apply and self-levelling, it gives the smoothest of matte finishes with an unrivalled durability.
Fusion™ is a water-based paint that requires minimal prep work and, with a built-in top coat, there’s no need for waxes or sealers either (although the sort of decorative effects you can achieve with Fusion’s wide range of finishing waxes, glazes and other products etc is well worth checking out!)
Unlike chalk paint, Fusion™ is made using 100% acrylic resin. This creates a waterproof, non-porous surface that is so durable and hard-wearing, it’s even suitable for use on exterior projects such as front doors or garden furniture, as well as kitchens and bathrooms indoors. Because of the quality ingredients and careful manufacturing processes, Fusion™ will last up to 7 YEARS in its airtight container once opened and the paint finish will not ‘yellow’ over time.
What makes Fusion™ different?
Each and every ingredient in the formulation is carefully selected, evaluated and tested to the strictest quality control measures to ensure a superior performing paint. Fusion™ colours are:
- lead free
- virtually odourless
- near zero VOC (volatile organic compounds)
- free of other chemicals commonly used such as ammonia and formaldehyde
Dry Time vs Cure Time:
Drying time is approximately one hour, however we recommend allowing 2-4 hours between coats to ensure the most stable surface on which to recoat. Cure time is different – all paints take time to ‘cure’ (reach their maximum durability) – Fusion™ will be at its toughest 21 days after application. This doesn’t mean you can’t use your finished piece until then, just do so carefully. We do not recommend painting below 10°C as it may affect the quality of the paint’s adhesion.
Fusion™ is available in 37ml Tester pots and 500ml Pots. 500ml will cover approximately 7 sq.m. (75 sq.ft).
