paint this way.

July 6, 2015

we’ve had lots of big dreams with junk gypsy. and one more just came true. the dream of having our own paint line. it was our destiny. like peas and carrots (or i kinda prefer the analogy “like chips & guacamole”…because let’s be honest, we live in texas and although i do love my veggies, nothing and i mean NOTHING stands between me and my avocados)…whooo…i digress… like chips and guacamole, we just go together.

because as y’all probably know by now, if anything stays still too long around here, we either paint it, or glitter it, or both. #paintfixeseverything

and not only is it awesome paint in all of our hand-picked favorite colors, BUT it’s made of all natural CLAY & CHALK which means it’s non-toxic, ZERO VOC, & solvent free! ANDDDDDD (it gets even better) it’s completely born & made in the USA!

 

it’s like buttah…smooth and creamy.

smooth and creamy buttah in 16 awesome colors.

from gypsy prom…

to flower child…

to american dream…

and singin’ the texas blues…

and everything in between. like free spirit, wanderlust, dreamcatcher and buttermilk biscuit. (yes, i said BUTTERMILK BISCUIT. because biscuits ARE life and because this paint color is the creamiest, smoothest, most beautiful shade of off-white EVER!)

BUT in case you need EVEN more color options, you can head over to the junk gypsy paint BLOG and learn about paint mixology!

seriously…you’ll feel like a mad scientist creating your own cool colors from our paints!

also on the blog, how to decoupage using our matte clear coat…

because we all know how much we love to clear coat EVERYTHING…(for the paint/clear coat beginners, adding a clear coat to almost ANYTHING makes it look better. it brings out the different facets of old paint or rust and makes the finish look so much better! plus, if you have a piece that is chippy peely, adding a clear coat preserves that chippy peely finish to perfection!)

and the beauty of chalk & clay based paint? a little bit goes a reallllllly long way.

and for those that are a little hesitant about those first strokes, READ here for all kinds o’ good tips on getting started…

if you’ve never painted, now is the time. and we would be so honored if you would give our new paint a shot. let us know what you think! and pleaseeeee send pics!!!!!

alsooooo….lots of retailers across the US are carrying our paint at their stores! you can check here for retailers near you, or to inquire about carrying it in your own store! or if you live wayyyy out in the country like we do, you can order it online from us! or stop by the JG world HQ to grab a few quarts in person!
