Excellent feedback

 

There are so many benefits to using our chalk paint which those of you that get to meet me get preached about at any opportunity!! I can't help it. I've got the bug ...the "chalk paint bug".

UP CYCLING: How many of you have old useless furniture in your garages and homes, perhaps they have been inherited, damaged..... or maybe you have a Trade me addiction....I can talk!  

CREATING: A lot of us find it very therapeutic picking up a brush and wiling the hours away in our own worlds, making things better in their lives, it really is good for the soul.

HAVING FUN: Our retailers and myself just loving seeing our customers bouncing in to their stores just too excited to be buying paint!

It really is a fab hobby, you are helping the environment, up cycling, saving money, unleashing creativity that you didn't know you had and best of all having exciting fun all round!! 

 Heres a lovely testimonial we received from a happy customer........................

" i purchased this paint a few weeks ago and to be honest i was very skeptical no sanding ect and i thought to myself this is way to good to be true but purchased some anyway (aged white) and WOW this product is amazing and it does not smell like paint (no chemical smell) easy to apply and a lot goes a long way ( we painted a wooden change table and a small bookshelf with 2 coats) i have been recommending your paint/ website to everyone i know. Thank you for making a hard job easy. Thank you Krystal"

Happy painting

Hi Alison,
Thanks for your fast postage of the wax. Managed to finish off my projects today yay and must say the Carnauba wax is brilliant! lovely finish and so easy to use and best of all a safe product! I searched high and low for a wax that I can use being pregnant (so many have some scary ingredients!) and it was great to find yours. The projects I have been doing are for my toddlers room so nice to know it' safe for her too.

Newtons Liquid Carnauba Wax now online.

 

We are pleased to let you know we have added a unique Newton's Liquid Carnauba Wax to our online store range. This product differs from most waxes in that it is in liquid form. We find it very easy to use, while it still maintains the valued Carnauba properties of hardness and lustre.

We offer it in light and dark colouring. The light colour will add a richness and sheen, while the dark adds a vintage, aged depth of colour. The dark is our favourite for enhancing detailed, intricate embellishments on furniture. For any of you using this for the first time we suggest you coat the piece with light wax first and then apply the dark in small patches, buffing off as you go to ensure you control  the level of darkness you prefer.

 

 

 

This photo shows the effect you can create with just one coat of light wax (on the top drawer) directly over our chalk paint. We think it adds depth and patina and adds to the overall vintage appearance.

Try this product and you won't be disappointed! Among it's other attributes it is eco friendly, solvent free, packed in recyclable plastic and proudly made in NZ.

You can buy the Newton's Liquid Carnauba Wax here.

Happy Painting,
