How much Dixie Belle paint do you need?
A large 32 oz jar will cover a large size dresser and 2 nightstands. The medium 16 oz jar will paint a coffee and 2 end tables. Dixie Belle Paint is very thick and a little goes a long way. The longer the lid stays off, the thicker it will get. If you'd like it thinner, no worries, just add a little water and stir. Add too much water? No worries, just leave lid off and it will thicken up. Whatever consistency you desire, Dixie Belle Paint will work for you!
How to use Dixie Belle chalk mineral paint:
Clean your piece with White Lightning, or any other product that will help eliminate dust and dirtiness from your piece.

Start with a DAMP brush. Don't forget to blot it after wetting it.
Use only a small amount of paint. The damp brush will allow it to go a long way.
Apply thin coats and allow to dry in between. About 10 minutes. Typically 2 coats is enough, though 3 is used when you have a light color and darker wood.
Let your piece dry. About 15 minutes. At this time, you can use our Finishing Pad to buff the color out to a silky, smooth finish.

Curing takes 30 days, so make sure you give it that time so the color and paint locks in before you use the piece every day.
