Stop waxing chalk, and paint with Fusion!
Can Fusion seriously do everything chalk paint can do? Yes, and more!
Fusion Mineral Paint...
Can Chalk-paint can't say all that?
"I sell Fusion Mineral Paint, Iron Orchid Designs Decor Transfers, Moulds, and Stamps, and refinished furniture. Like everyone, do my best to save money and time so I can spend both on my family. I can do everything with Fusion Mineral Paint for less money and in much less time than if I used a chalk paint." ~Vonda Youngkin, from The Painted Heirloom
The question shouldn't be why should I use Fusion, but why shouldn't I use Fusion?

What is Fusion Mineral Paint (1:34)
How much coverage do I get with a Pint of Fusion?
More than you might think! Many are often blown away by the coverage of Fusion Mineral Paint! From 1 Pint, you can paint several pieces of furniture, and that’s for around $21! On average, One Pint of Fusion Mineral Paint covers about 75 square feet, or, 2 coats of a larger dresser. You would need about a quart of chalky type of paint to get that kind of coverage! See more information about coverage.
How many colors?
Fusion currently has 50+ colors spread throughout the brand new Lisa Marie Holmes Collection, the Classic collection, the Penney & Co. collection, the Tones for Tots collection, and the Metallic collection. You can view the entire Fusion Collection here, or below.
Do I have to finish my piece with wax?
No, you don’t have to finish your piece with wax because Fusion was formulated with a built in top coat! Once cured, it yields a highly durable, stain-proof, washable finish that is UV resistant, with no need for a top coat! If you choose, of course you can achieve a beautiful luster by adding a wax on top. We have a whole array of beautiful decorative and faux finishes to choose from, to give your piece that little extra protection or a desired look.
Is Fusion™ the same as a Chalk-like Paint?
No, it’s not. Fusion™ is a 100% acrylic, water-based paint. Using natural rather than synthetic pigments allows for greater depth in colour and better durability to UV light and time. Once cured, a surface painted with Fusion™ is both water and stain proof. No primer or top coat is required, making it more of a one-step kind of paint.
Wait, if it's not chalk paint, can I "distress?"
Yes, you can get a distressed or layered look! Because of Fusion’s™ supreme adhesion, distressing can be tough once the paint is cured. If you would like to do some distressing, we recommend doing it soon after the paint dries or by using our wax block resist.

Can I really paint any surface with Fusion™ Mineral Paint like metal or glass?
Yes, our Ultra Grip™ allows for Fusion™ to adhere to surfaces that are typically not for painting such as a lacquered surface, metal or glass.
When do I use Fusion™ Tough Coat™?
Fusion's Tough Coat™ was developed for those high traffic surfaces such as table tops, seating, and kitchen cabinets. Tough Coat™ is non-yellowing and provides extra durability against general wear and tear, water damage and food stains. It is not recommended over medium to dark paint colours due to water vapour being trapped which could cause streaking. Instead use the Natural Stain and Finishing Oil over medium to darker colours for extra added durability on high traffic areas such as kitchen cabinets, table tops or flooring.
