A little bit information on this company
The word La Craie is French for “the chalk”. Our exclusive formula is unlike any you’ve seen before. It was designed with you, the creative and conscious consumer, in mind.
We wanted to make it both excellent quality and affordable. La Craie dries to a soft, velvety finish and is extremely low in organic volatile compounds, making it a green and eco-friendly alternative to traditional oil-based paints so often used on furniture. With little to no odor, we can create your masterpiece just about anywhere without fear of reprisal from your delicate senses.
La Craie has been carefully refined and perfect to the last drop. Silky and smooth, the paint can be applied using a variety of techniques in addition to ‘straight from the can’. It’s been specially formulated for painting furniture, cabinetry, and trim. It can also be used to top off any existing furniture finish, without the need for stripping, sanding, or priming. What could be simpler?
For a more distressed look, apply waxes to create that classic, old world patina. Add a bit of water and try it as a color wash. If you prefer your paint a bit thicker, simply leave the lid off for awhile. The paint will thicken without forming a skin on top. This calcium carbonate based formula is available in 28 delicious colors. You’re sure to find the perfect shade for your project. Use one color or layer several. The sky’s the limit.
