Learn how to mix custom paint colours with Fusion Mineral Paint. There are 32 recipes that make it simple to do.

Well hello there! I have so many exciting things to tell you that I am shaking a wee bit as I write this blog post. Many of you know that I have been a police and fire dispatcher for many years (like many, many years!) Well, I have taken a one year leave of absence from the police station to play with paint and photography! After that year is up, I guess I will see where life takes me.

For the next year, I will be working with Jennylyn from Homestead House Paint Company. I will be painting and creating all sorts of fun photos for them using both Fusion Mineral Paint and Homestead House Milk Paint. Although I have done some work for them in the past couple years, we are stepping it up a notch and I will be creating much more!

Homestead House is located in Toronto and I am on the other side of Ontario in Thunder Bay. So, we have a bit of a long distance relationship going on, but it's working so far!

I could easily ramble on about my new adventure, but to spare you, I'll sum it up in four words - DREAMS DO COME TRUE!

These chairs and hat box are painted by mixing custom colours of Fusion Mineral Paint with a simple recipe. There are 32 recipes to choose from!

This is one of the first projects I have worked on for Fusion Mineral Paint. They have come up with a brilliant idea! Fusion already has 53 great colours to choose from, but now there is a simple way for you to mix even more colours. 

Fusion Mineral Paint has made mixing paint simple. They have created 32 recipe cards so that you can mix up all sorts of new colours! 

Fusion has created 32 little recipe cards offering you a simple way to mix colours. I mixed all three of these lovely colours by using only three Fusion colours - a red, a blue and a white (Fort York Red, Liberty Blue and Picket Fence).

These little chairs and hat box were painted by mixing custom colours of Fusion Mineral Paint. Fusion offers 32 recipes that make mixing your own custom colours very simple.

How pretty are these colours together? I would love to use some of these shades in my own bedroom!

This little chair was painted a beautiful shade of lavender blue using a custom blend of Fusion Mineral Paint. Fusion has 32 recipes available so that you can mix paint to create many wonderful colours like this one.

This chair is is a lovely shade of lavender blue. The recipe is:

1 part Fort York Red
2 parts Liberty Blue
3 parts Picket Fence

Once you choose the size of the project you want to paint, then you will have an idea of how much paint to mix. I mixed up quite a bit of this colour because I was messing around with it for photos. But, I would estimate that if your "parts" were a tablespoon of paint you would be good to go on a project the size of my chair.

Therefore you would mix:

1 tbsp Fort Fort Red
2 tbsp Liberty Blue
3 tbsp PIcket Fence.

Easy, huh? That would total 6 tbsp of paint which is enough for most small projects.

This little chair was painted a wonderful shade of mauve by using a custom blend of Fusion Mineral Paint. Fusion has 32 recipes available so that you can mix paint to create many wonderful colours like this one.

This chair is a wonderful mauve using this recipe:

1 part Liberty Blue
2 parts Fort York Red
3 parts Picket Fence

This little hat box was painted a wonderful shade of pink by using a custom blend of Fusion Mineral Paint. Fusion has 32 recipes available so that you can mix paint to create many wonderful colours like this one.

This cute little hat box is pink! Yes, Pink! It is such an amazing shade of pink that I just about can't stand it. It reminds me of ice cream and is almost yummy enough to eat. 

This shade of pink is:

1 part Fort York Red
5 parts PIcket Fence

If you wanted a lighter shade of pink, you could easily add another part or two of Picket Fence.

So what do you think? Easy peasy huh? Trust me, I would normally be a little intimidated by mixing my own colours. Heck, I don't even own a colour wheel (but I guess I should).

By using a simple recipe, it is easy to mix your own custom colours of Fusion Mineral Paint. A mixture of Fort York Red and Picket Fence makes this lovely pink colour.

These little recipe cards make it so simple!

Here are a couple more tips:

Once you have painted your first coat of paint, you will have an idea whether or not you have enough paint for a second coat. If you don't have enough for a second coat, I would recommend that you mix up another batch of paint and then mix your new batch with your old batch so that your entire second coat will be the same colour.

If you have leftover paint, store it in a sealed container.

My blog post would be ridiculously long if I posted all 32 recipe cards. You can pop over to "32 RECIPES FOR MIXING CUSTOM COLOURS" if you want to see all the gorgeous colours.

You can also pin this for later!
