Saltwash is a product, invented to create a unique weather-worn, layered sun and salt air soaked look in just two quick steps. Saltwash™ is made with real sea salt, so you will notice it dries quicker and adheres to almost any surface that takes paint. It was designed to be mixed into any brand or type of paint and used as the base coat. When mixed to the desired consistency, it can be applied to almost any paintable surface. Originally intended for furniture, Saltwash™ also has been found to give a unique look to walls, flooring, metal, and even plastic.
Saltwash™ is offered in two sizes, a large tin at 42oz and a mini tin at 10oz. The large 42oz tin will extend to do about two large dressers, depending on the preferred consistency, or mix into about half a gallon of paint. The 10oz. mini tin is preferred for small projects and is good for first introductions to Saltwash™.
Saltwash™ is a low VOC product and all of the ingredients in it are considered safe in a working environment. We are very concerned with safety, so we recommend always taking precautions. And because this revolutionary product is a powder, we suggest wearing proper respiratory and eye protection when mixing and sanding.
