Paint Couture is a zero VOC, water-based, 100% Acrylic resin paint. It is a self priming, Décor, furniture and cabinet paint. Paint Couture has a great adhesion capability to existing painted or varnished surfaces. With Paint Couture there is usually no sanding and no priming, except for cabinetry. It is easy to apply, it is smooth and lays on very flat with little to no brush marks. The dry look is a matte finish. As it is a 100% Acrylic paint it becomes very hard and very durable. A Glaze or Couture Topcoat is recommended but not required. Cleaning up is easy with just soap and water.
