How durable is Fusion Mineral Paint?

Fusion Mineral Paint in the colour Casement

Do you remember when I painted a whole bunch of furniture with Fusion Mineral Paint when I was making colour collages? Well, a couple of the pieces I painted have taken quite the beating during my shop renovations.

This little table painted in the colour Casement ended up having a bunch of stuff piled on it and got scuffed up.

I tried to wipe off the scuff marks with a rag and was not having any luck. So, I decided to put Fusion Paint to the test! I brought in the big guy ... Old Dutch Cleansing Powder. Old Dutch is similar to Comet and it is a very gritty cleanser.

I sprinkled a bit of Old Dutch on the scuff mark and gently rubbed it with a rag.

The scuff mark disappeared but the paint held up perfectly. Fusion is super durable! Keep in mind that Fusion takes about 21 days to fully cure, so I would not use an abrasive cleanser until it has cured.

I am so impressed with how simple it was to remove the scuff marks!

Fusion has a built in top coat which means you do not have to put anything on top of the paint. But, for addition protection I could have topcoated the table with Fusion Beeswax Finish or Fusion Tough Coat

Fusion dries to a very matte finish, so you may also choose to use a topcoat if you want more of a sheen on your finished piece.

Fusion Mineral Paint is available in tester sizes and a 500 ml (1 pint) bottle. I have another blog post that shows how much a tester size or bottle will cover. I think you will be impressed!
