When painting previously used furniture and home décor accessories simply clean the surface using a glass cleaner to remove dirt or dust particles as necessary. Glass and ceramic surfaces should be wiped down using rubbing alcohol.
What is Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint?

It is ideal for painting furniture and various home decor accessories because it requires no prep work. Simply clean the surface that you wish to paint with a glass cleaner to remove any dirt or grease, and then paint.
Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor Paint is beautiful when applied as a single color. It was formulated especially for distressing techniques, so that the top layer can be sanded away to reveal a different color beneath.
What types of surfaces can I use Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint on?
Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint can be applied to many different types of surfaces such as wood, terra cotta, metal/tin, canvas, paper mache and plaster.
It can also be applied to ceramic and/or glass surfaces, however the paint is not dishwasher safe. Fabric surfaces can also be painted using Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint, however the surface is not machine washable. When decorating glass, ceramic and fabric surfaces, your project should be used as a decorative accessory and lightly cleaned using a damp cloth when needed.
Can Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint colors be mixed to create new colors or different values of the same color?
Yes, Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paints mix easily to create any color you desire. Begin by mixing a small amount of the darker color into the lighter color first. Continue adding the darker color a little at a time until the desired color or value is achieved.
Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint can also be added to the Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor Clear wax to create a custom colored wax, just add a little paint at a time until desired color is achieved. (Note: While you can use the Martha Stewart Multi-Surface paint to accent your Vintage Decor painted piece, we do not recommend mixing it with the Vintage Decor paint to create custom colors, as the satin finish of the Multi-Surface paint will alter the distressing properties of the Vintage Decor paint.)

All Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paints are very fade-resistant and made using very high quality pigments that will give your painted project a superior, long-lasting finish.
I am working on a large piece of furniture, how much paint coverage will I achieve with one 8 fl. oz. bottle of Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint?

How long does Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint take to dry?
On most surfaces, Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint dries to the touch very quickly. However, we recommend 2 hours of dry time in between coats.

How do I create a distressed look using Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint?
Creating the distressed look is easy and can be achieved by simply sanding your painted surface with a medium grit sandpaper. This can be done using a one color or multiple color application. After distressing a one color application, the base surface will appear. After distressing a multiple color application, the previously painted color will appear.
Tip: Sand and distress edges and corners to highlight the detailed areas on your piece.
What makes Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint ideal for creating the distressed look?
Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paints sand easily without “gumming up” the sandpaper. It sands to a fine powder which is easily brushed or wiped away.
When satisfied with the distressed look, wipe project surface with a damp paper towel to remove excess sanding dust. Then you are ready to seal and protect your project with the Vintage Decor Waxes.
My Martha Stewart Crafts Vintage Decor paint has clumps in it! What should I do?
Over time, that is perfectly natural. As air becomes trapped in the top portion of the paint bottle (after it has been opened and paint used) a paint skin may form.
With each paint use, it is best to remove the top skin before stirring the paint.
