  6. Kimberly's avatar Kimberly says:

    What is the difference between the silk line and the original line of paints? Is one more durable? I didn’t think you needed to sand first with Dixie belle paints but it seems that you do with the silk line??

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company's avatar Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Kimberly! Silk Paint has a built-in stain blocker and a built-in topcoat. A scuff sanding is recommended when using Silk Paint. Silk Paint does not have chalk in it. Chalk Mineral Paint is great for blending and distressing. Both are durable. Silk Paint has a very sleek look. Here’s a link to our Silk Paint playlist on YouTube with lots of information and tutorials! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSWKwVocZqU&list=PLWoML0ipF6Tj1byG7Ld3xEPcQcU5hIAB0
