DecoArt just released their brand new Suede paint and is exclusive to Michaels. Add luxurious texture to any project with the cool new product. With spring approaching, I was excited to jazz up a plain pot with this amazing textured paint.
DecoArt Suede comes in ten rich colors. Pictured here is the Plum and Charcoal. It is a water based permanent paint with a cool suede texture.
For this quick and easy DIY grab:
- Paint brush
- painters tape
- DecoArt Suede paint
The amazing this about this paint is that there is no prep involved; which is always a plus for me because I’m inpatient. It also covers really well and the texture of the paint really hides imperfections.
Tape off where you would like your colors block to be on your pot. Push down the tape for minimal amount of bleeding and to ensure a crisp line.
Keep adding layers to get more coverage and to get the best suede look. Make sure to let each coat dry before applying the next layer.
When peeling the tape do not wait for it to dry. Peel while wet. The first time I tried it dry and it pulled up a lot of the edge and wasn’t a clean line. Peeling while wet will give you a cleaner edge. It is a textured paint so a perfect edge is hard. Your project will be fully cured in 7-10 days. You can also protect with the topcoat of Suede Varnish.
I love that amazing texture it gives this plain old pot. Painting an old lamp or a picture frame are other ways you can add a luxurious, bold touch to your decor.
