How do I get a chalky finish with Fresco?

Add about 2 tbsp of Fresco powder to a pint of Fusion. Apply the mixture to your prepped surface in various directions for a hand-painted look. If any lumps occur, brush them out.

How do I get a crackly, heavy-textured finish with Fresco?

For this texture, you want a lot of Fresco powder added to your paint. Try a 1 to 1 ratio to start. Apply a thick layer of the mixture to your prepped surface. Allow it to set for 10-20 minutes. Knock down any heavy lumps by passing your brush over them. The heavier the texture, the larger the cracks you will get. Letting the surface sit in sunlight, heat, or even using a hair dryer will increase the cracks.

How do I get a seaswept finish with Fresco?

Mix about 1 part Fresco to 2 parts Fusion Mineral Paint. Apply the mixture to your prepped surface. To add extra texture, try a stippling effect. Allow the mixture to set for 10-20 minutes and then knock down any heavy lumps by passing your brush over them. Allow to fully dry, then continue with additional colours and layers of paint. Fresco is not required in additional layers of paint. Complete the look by wet sanding to expose the multiple layers of paint and texture. For best results use a 220 grit sanding sponge. You can even do a little bit of antiquing with Espresso Wax or Antiquing Glaze to enhance the details.

What can I use Fresco on?

You can use Fresco on anything that you use Fusion on! Fresco dries to an extremely durable and tough finish.
