Damask is a bold yet muted mauve that goes well with earthy neutrals like Algonquin and Cathedral Taupe, and perfect with neutral whites such as Champlain or Raw Silk. It also pairs well with our greys like Sterling or Little Lamb and even muted blues like Heirloom. We have seen some beautiful uses of Damask in Paint It Beautiful.
Feel like you want to give it a little more edge? Damask is stunning when distressed over our Chocolate or Coal Black and is originally from Homestead House’s Gothic & Italianate Collection from over 20 years ago.
We know you love our English Rose paint. A millennial pink that literally took over every trend and home decor item around. Did you know, however, that before English Rose, one of Fusion Mineral Paint’s original colors was a deep, muted mauve called Damask? If you love English Rose, chances are you’ll be nostalgic for Damask! We are so thrilled to be bringing back this popular paint color Damask and this is it’s time to shine as this color is spreading like wildfire in the fashion and interiors worlds. Fusion Mineral Paint’s Damask is truly one of the most beautiful dusty mauve’s you will ever set your eyes on.
So what exactly is Fusion Mineral Paint?
Built in Top Coat ~ Price ~ Quality & Durability ~ Eco Friendly
Fusion has taken over 10 years to develop, test and refine. Fusion’s results are nothing less than spectacular, providing furniture painters a best-in-class paint that features; an environmentally conscious formulation, low VOC’s, superior durability, easy one-step application and significantly improved strength. Delivering an exceptional matte finish, this 100% acrylic paint requires minimal prep work!
Application: Follow our directions carefully and Fusion can be applied to most previously painted or coated surfaces without priming or significant prep work.
No top coat?:
Fusion is formulated with a built in top coat, the 100% acrylic resin. You do not need to use a top coat for water permanency!
Tip: On a microscopic level, flat or matte finishes have tiny ridges and valleys when the paint dries. Therefore, finger prints and marking can occur. The marks can easily be removed using a damp cloth, however, if you are concerned about dust marks, apply a coat of FUSION Beeswax Finish or FUSION Tough Coat.
Coverage: Excellent coverage! Our Fusion paint offers incredible coverage of 75 sq ft per Pint(500ml). In most cases one coat is all you need. Our coverage is outstanding! See pic for example of how much you can paint with just one pint.
Durability: Once Fusion has cured, it yields a highly durable and a washable finish. If you choose, you can of course achieve a beautiful lustre by adding a Beeswax Finish on top, or the Tough Coat. Fusion is dry to the touch after 2 hours and can accept a re-coat after 4 hours. Cure time with all acrylic paints is 21 days, however, painted surfaces can be used gently after 24 to 48 hours of drying time.
Sheen: Fusion is offered in a gorgeous matte finish. This means an almost zero reflectance value that allows you to achieve a beautiful smooth finish.
Distress: Absolutely! This paint is extremely easy to work with, though we recommend distressing soon after the paint has dried. It is very durable, so achieving the same result is tad more work after it has cured! It is recommended to apply a top coat when you distress because you will break open the surface and a top coat will be necessary to prevent water damage and continued distressing through extensive wear and tear.
