Finishes For Furniture

Chalk Style Paint

Chalk Style Paint is a casual chalky interior matte paint in 20 contemporary colors. This new palette complements our lively Milk Paint line with colors inspired by relaxed Scandinavian hues, British tradition and American favorites.

Glaze Effects

Glaze Effects are translucent water based colors used to create beautiful decorative finishes such as distressing, marble, shabby chic, burnishing, color washing, rag rolling and wood graining.

Glaze Effects can be inter-mixed or layered to create custom colors. They may also be layered over one another to create deeper, richer looks.

Milk Paint

Available in 26 colors, General Finishes Milk Paint is a high quality interior/exterior pre-mixed paint. Not a true "casein based milk paint" but a modern version of old world paint with a strong mineral base. It is adaptable and UV resistant. It may be applied via brush or spray and possesses excellent flow and leveling properties.

Pearl Effects

Pearl Effects are water based decorative, acrylic pearlescent colors used to create specialty finishes. Available in Argentine, Bronze, Burnished, Champagne, Copper and Tawny; you are sure to find one to add the finishing touch to your project!

Water Based Dye Stains

Water Based Dye Stains penetrate deep into the wood to magnify the grain beautifully. They will provide your project with more depth and color vibrancy than any other stain. This product is excellent for highly figured woods like mahogany, walnut, or maple. Dye stains can also be used as a toner when mixed with Water Based Topcoats.

Water Based Wood Stains

Water Based Wood Stains have all the advantages of oil based stains: they spread easily, can be repaired, blend effortlessly and have plenty of open time. The thicker formula allows controlled penetration, which will reduce blotching on softer woods such as Aspen, Pine and Maple.
