Dixie Belle paint is very thick so a little goes a long ways. The longer the lid stays off the thicker it will get. If you like a thinner look then just add a little water and stir. Clean the item your wanting to paint with Dixie Belle White Lighting, take a damp brush, (you can use a chip brush or special brushes designed for chalk paint or what ever brush you like to work with) and paint a very thin coat. It will dry very quickly. Some items will need a second coat so after about 30 minutes add another coat.
Dixie Belle Painting will be the easiest and most enjoyable painting you will ever do!
- Clean your piece, preferably with Dixie Belle White Lightning Cleaner, to remove dust and grime.

Dixie Belle Paint is very thick and a little goes a long way. The longer the lid stays off, the thicker it will get. If you’d like it thinner, no worries, just add a little water and stir. Add too much water? No worries, just leave lid off and it will thicken up. Whatever consistency you desire, Dixie Belle Paint will work for you!
Distress a little too much for your taste? That’s okay! Just paint right over that area and start again!
