This Giveaway is over, but you can still enjoy some beautiful colour combinations with Fusion Mineral Paint.
April S. from Hancock, Michigan is our Giveaway #2 winner!
Thank you for all the great comments everyone. I'm enjoying reading them. One of my favourite comments was from Dawn who said "I have an old sewing table that's just crying to be re-finished with Fusion." I've seen sewing machines re-purposed and used for many things, but I've never seen a sewing machine cry! I think Dawn's being a little dramatic and I love it! Thank you Dawn for putting a smile on my face.
This is day four of our giveaways. There are 14 giveaways in total!

Hello again. Are you tired of me yet? It's okay to say yes, I'm getting tired of me too! Hopefully, the giveaways and the beautiful colour combinations make it worth popping in for!
Yesterday was neutral colours, so I decided today should include some beautiful bolds!
Starting from the top: we have Cathedral Taupe, Prairie Sunset, Park Bench and Raw Silk. They sure play well together, don't they?
I was excited to take photos of these colours! I had some brand new big sheets of paper that I thought would work well with wet paint - boy was I wrong! I did the wet paint brush strokes, turned around to get my camera and right before my eyes the paper began to pucker. Really?!?! Wash the brush. Start again.
This was an improvement, but the colour Raw Silk didn't showed up on the paper as well as I had hoped. Frustration began to set it.
So I did what any frustrated person would do! I dipped more brushes in paint, threw them around a little and took some shots. It felt good! Really good! And I liked the way the shots turned out. There's just something about messy paint.
This is an old photo of one the first projects I ever painted with Fusion in the colour Prairie Sunset. I still love this colour!
The spoons are also painted. Yes, you can paint on metal! I would recommend that you put a coat of Ultra Grip on metal before you paint it. Did I? Absolutely not. They were spoons and I would have been okay if the paint chipped off a little. They would have matched my old measuring cup. The paint held up fine BUT if I was going to paint a metal door on my home, I certainly wouldn't have risked it. I would have given the door a quick coat of Ultra Grip first.
I just had to pour some Prairie Sunset in my little measuring cup and take a photo. Why? Because some things just make me smile and this photo is one of them. Prairie Sunset is such a happy colour.
See you tomorrow!
