Frequently Asked Questions


"What makes Amulent Decor Paint so different from any other paint on the market?"

Amulent is the newest and most innovative way to paint furniture! Created for ease and loved for the gorgeous results it provides, Amulent is the paint that more and more furniture painters are turning to. Whether you're creating an antiqued and time-worn look or a modern and sleek look, Amulent can do it all!

Simply put, Amulent utilizes a special type of ceramic technology that allows it to outperform your expectations - with excellent flow and leveling properties, strength, durability and workability that is unmatched by any of its competition.

Using any application technique, from beginner to seasoned professional, you can easily create any look you desire! 


"So, it's not a chalk-style paint then?"

No, Amulent Decor Paint prides itself on being completely different - it's not chalk, it's ceramic! But why is this important? Because Amulent remains untouched by unneeded additives, so its undiluted formula provides extreme durability with exceptional coverage and smoothness - something we're already becoming know for! But want to hear from someone other than ourselves? Just search our Instagram Page for first-hand testimonials from the furniture artisans who already love Amulent! Testimonial page coming soon!


"Can I distress my furniture using Amulent?"

Yes, absolutely! In fact, Amulent smoothes away evenly and cleanly with minimal mess for a gorgeous and natural antiqued look!


"How durable is Amulent?"

Amulent is extremely durable. Paint your piece and do a scratch test and find for yourself that Amulent sets exceptionally hard - while still allowing you to easily  distress using your preferred method. However, as standard across the paint industry, Amulent requires 30 days to achieve full cure - resulting in an even harder, more durable finish.


"Is there anything that I need to do to the paint before starting?"

Other than giving it a good stir, nope! Just stir thoroughly making sure all materials are well blended together and then start painting! 


"How much prep do you suggest?"

It depends on the state of your furniture piece before you start painting, but we always suggest prepping well to ensure a long lasting finish.

Regardless of the level of prep you choose to do, Amulent is highly durable and will adhere to most all surfaces. However, you will want to scuff sand any glossy surfaces, as is typically advised.


"Do I need to use a topcoat?"

While you don't have to, we always suggest using either a wax for light  protection, or water-based topcoat for max protection from scratches and moisture.

The Chippy Barn offers two great sealers - our Ultra-Tough Topcoat and Specialty Wax.


"Is Ultra-Tough Topcoat non-yellowing?"

Yes, Ultra-Tough Topcoat is ABSOLUTELY non-yellowing! Ultra-Tough Topcoat can be used over the whitest furniture without fear of yellowing. Not today - or ever!
