La Craie is a premium Furniture Paint. Our exclusive formula contains calicium carbonate allowing adhesion to almost any surface. La Craie was designed with you, the creative and conscious consumer, in mind.
La Craie dries to a soft, velvety finish and is extremely low in organic volatile compounds, making it a green and eco-friendly alternative to oil based paints so often used on furniture. This water based paint has little to no odor; you can create your masterpiece just about anywhere without fear of reprisal from your delicate senses.
La Craie has been carefully refined and perfected to the last drop. It has been specially formulated for painting furniture, cabinetry, and trim. Silky and smooth, the paint can be applied using a variety of techniques in addition to ‘straight from the can’. It can also be used to top off any existing furniture finish, without the need for stripping, sanding, or priming. La Craie will adhere to most surfaces. Add a bit of water and try it as a color wash. If you prefer your paint a bit thicker, simply leave the lid off for awhile. Use one color or layer several. Finish and protect with Maison Blanche Paint Company’s Antique Wax.
La Craie contains no harsh chemical drying agents. This means a longer “open time” or “wet time” allowing the paint to settle and smooth as it dries to a velvety finish and reduces the likelihood of chalk balls. Please allow La Craie to cure for 48 hours in order to reach it’s full durability and strength.
