I can do everything with Fusion Mineral Paint for less money and in much less time than if I used a chalk paint." ~Vonda @ The Painted Heirloom

What is Fusion Mineral Paint (1:34)
How many colors? Fusion currently has 27 colors in the Classic collection, 14 in the Penney & Co. collection, 7 in the Tones for Tots collection, and 9 gorgeous colors in the Metallic collection. That's 57 colors to choose from!
Do I have to finish my piece with wax? No, you don’t have to finish your piece, because Fusion™ was formulated with a built in top coat. Once cured, it yields a highly durable and a washable finish, with no need for a top coat! If you choose, you can, of course, 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.
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 you 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™ 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.
