How to Get Started with Dixie Belle Paint

So, you’ve just got your new Dixie Belle Paint products and you’re wondering how to get started on your project. We’ve got you covered!

Let’s Get Started! Step One:

White Lightning

Use this first to clean your projects prior to painting.

White Lightning will de-grease and remove all debris from your furniture, kitchen cabinets or whatever you want to paint. It will prep your piece and help you achieve the best outcome for your painted masterpiece.

For in-depth instructions, read this!

Assess the need for BOSS or Slick Stick.

Slick Stick

This product allows you to paint shiny, slick, or slippery surfaces with ease! Surfaces like PVC, glass, Formica, laminate, metal, and more are easily painted and stay painted. This product will easily allow the paint to adhere to the surface!

BOSS

Blocks Odors, Stains, Stops Bleed thru!

It contains odor eliminating and stain blocking technology for exceptional coverage. BOSS prevents bleed thru of wood tannins and varnishes, allowing you to transform any piece to a crisp, light color with ease. This product will completely mask odors on old furniture that may have been exposed to smoke, pets, or other circumstances that contribute to odors.

Time to Paint! Step Two:

Painting with Dixie Belle Paint will be the easiest and most enjoyable painting you will ever do. Choose from 64 amazing colors!

Be sure to start with a damp brush.

Once you’ve dipped your brush in the jar, remove the excess and apply evenly to your project.

Dixie Belle Paint goes a long way!

Get your desired consistency by leaving the lid off to allow the paint to thicken up or add water to thin it out.

Most pieces will take one to two coats for full coverage.

Dixie Belle Paint is self-leveling, so brushstrokes will melt away!

  3. Sandra says:

    I want to like to paint a black wood cabinet. Will it cover in 2 coats? Would it work for painting black woodwork and a door?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Sandra, our lighter colors will cover in two coats but many colors only need one. Be sure to clean well with White Lightning first. If you are concerned about bleed thru on the wood, you can use BOSS before painting. Hope this helps. Happy painting! 🙂

  4. Judy says:

    Is this paint just for furniture? Could it be used with stencils?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Judy, you can use our paint on other pieces around your home as well as DIY crafts. Yes you can definitely use our paint with stencils! Check them out here: https://bit.ly/2Z7MVYy Happy painting! 🙂

  6. Melissa Goray says:

    Can you paint indoors with Dixie Belle paints? I do not have a garage or area outside!

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Melissa, yes Dixie Belle Paint is safe to use indoors. Happy painting! 🙂

  7. Laura says:

    I am painting an old table that had a rough surface. IMs not sure how to make the paint look smoother and whether I should use the clear coat or the wax on top to make it smoother.

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Laura, if the surface is super rough you can sand it down a bit with our sanding sponge. After you paint, you can definitely add Clear Coat or Best Dang Wax. Hopefully this helps! Happy painting!

  8. Tracey says:

    I would like to know how to paint the ceiling fans. This is so awesome I don’t need to buy new ones.
    Thanks

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:
