Coastal Candy Paint Additive
Coastal Candy was developed to provide consumers, with a safe way to create the look and feel of aged layers of paint. Add Coastal Candy to any water based paint to create a beachy, salt-air worn effect. Coastal Candy is all-natural, earth friendly, and adds no VOC’s to your paint or the environment.
While we love the look of a salt wash, air timeworn piece, when it comes to recreating this look we want to maintain that beautiful finish for a lifetime. Coastal candy is all natural, salt-free and adds no VOCs to your paint. Salt is a natural dehydrator. Over time this could weaken your paints adhesion and durability. Building a strong foundation will allow for a lifetime of enjoyment!
Coastal Candy comes in a 24oz. convenient resealable pouch.
A 24 oz. pouch will “Candy” two quarts of paint.*
Square foot coverage will depend on the type of paint used. See your paints directions.
*The amount of coastal candy needed will vary depending on paint brand used and your consistency preference.
Ideal consistency mimics cake icing.
