How to Use Slick Stick

What is Slick Stick?

Slick Stick 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!

Slick Stick is a water-base primer specifically made to bond to difficult surfaces. This product is a problem solver and should not be needed on all projects.

Here’s step by step of Slick Stick!

Step 1:

First, clean your piece with White Lightning to rid your piece of wax, oils, dust, and peeling rust or paint. Follow directions on the White Lightning label. Wipe down and allow to dry. Please ensure your piece is thoroughly dry prior to painting.

Step 2:

Start with a damp brush and apply one coat of Slick Stick and allow it to dry for 2-3 hours.

Step 3:

Apply second coat of Slick Stick and allow the two layers to dry overnight.

NOTE: Surface must be thoroughly dry prior to painting.

Step 4:

Start painting! Apply Dixie Belle Paint in the color of your choice!

Now you can admire your favorite Dixie Belle Paint color on top! This will not scratch or peel at all after it has cured. Our products take 21-30 days to cure.

Please Note:

Do not pour excess Slick Stick down the drain, however it is safe to wash your brushed with warm water and soap down the drain. Do not freeze Slick Stick!

Customer Review:

“I had a super glossy piece of wood furniture and painted it with Slick Stick after thoroughly cleaning and rinsing it. Slick Stick worked like a charm! I was then able to use Dixie Belle Paint to cover both the wood doors, frame and the counter top.” – Dee Anna B.

    Question? Can Slick Stick be used/applied using a paint sprayer? Thanks!

      Hi Charles, yes you can use Slick Stick in a paint sprayer and there is no need to add water. Happy Painting! 🙂

  2. Val says:

    Can you use other paints other than Dixie Belle with Slick Stick Bonding primer? I don’t want to use milk paint for kitchen cupboards.

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Val, we have not tested other paints with our products, but can assure you that Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint is compatible with Slick Stick. Check out this blog about painting kitchen cabinets with DBP: https://bit.ly/2LKTkXI 🙂

  3. Lisa says:

    Hi, Can you use gel stain over slick stick?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Lisa, we wouldn’t recommend using No Pain Gel Stain on top of Slick Stick. Depending on what type of surface you’re painting on, gel stains can be applied to factory finish or raw wood. If you use Slick Stick, the surface is going to be white so you will have to cover it completely and it will just look like the solid color of the gel stain. If you’re just trying to get a solid color, we recommend just using one of our paint colors. Hope this helps. Happy painting! 🙂

  4. Erin says:

    Do you have to apply 2 coats of slick stick or would one be ok?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Erin, yes we recommend two coats of Slick Stick for full adhesion. Happy painting! 🙂

  5. Jessica Vasquez Alvarado says:

    Can you use this on tile countertops, does the paint after applying the slick stick chip away

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Jessica, yes you can use Slick Stick on countertops! The paint will not chip away. The Slick Stick will adhere the paint to the surface. We recommend finishing up with Gator Hide for a water repellent and very durable finish in a high traffic area.

  6. Sheri says:

    Can this be used on tile surrounding a garden tub in a bathroom? Or on a laminate countertop? Thank you.

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Sheri, yes you can definitely use Slick Stick on both of those surfaces. We recommend using Gator Hide after you paint for a water repellent and durable finish. Happy painting! 🙂

  7. Ghislaine Chambas says:

    Hi I want to use Slick Stick in my shower I want the tiles to be white, so do I need to use a white paint after the to coats of Slick Stick?
    Thank you

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Ghislaine, yes after you’ve applied Slick Stick you need to use white chalk mineral paint on the tiles. We highly recommend using Gator Hide after the paint for a water repellent durable finish. The Gator Hide is the main key to for painted surfaces in bathrooms. Hopefully this helps, happy painting! 🙂

  8. Shellie says:

    Can I use slick stick over oil bass paint? If so should I lightly sand first,or just clean with white lighting and use slick stick.

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hello Shellie, we do not recommend using Slick Stick with oil based paint since it is a water based product. All of our products including White Lightning are water based so we recommend using them only with other Dixie Belle Paint products. We are unsure how compatible they are with other brands. Hopefully this helps. Happy painting! 🙂
